Well, we'll have to start with something, don't we? ;)
I love taking pictures of the crowd. The smile of a young person completely immersed by the peformance and the music is very genuine... Here are some of my favorites:
1 From a pop concert
2 From DragonForce concert (power metal). the front of the audience is giving the finger to the audience at the back by the command of the band who thought that the people at the back weren't loud enough. I like how the two girls seem to hold the picture together:
3 Heavy metal. I think that it is essential even in chaotic crowd shots to have somebody's face clearly in focus.
4 Assorted limbs :)
5 Genuine smile
6 Waiting for the next performer (I think I'll be searching for these "posers" a lot more at the next summer's open air festivals):
7 Somebody loves you...
