Following Eliza were Alphabeat. I had never photographed or seen them perform before and I must say I really enjoyed the performance (although I could not hang around for the whole set as I had to get back and file the shots I had taken).

Sometimes the lighting in C2 is not the easiest to work with (and this was one of those times). The prime requirement here is to ensure that I deliver enough different colour shots (because black and white just do not sell in todays media).

Once I was sure I had enough I switched to my beloved Black and White because I felt the emotion and the performance of the lead singer, Anders SG would not come through in colour. I was right. The monochrome images have a real “live” feel to them…
