I really like how the colour came out and how it works with what is visible. It helps to bring forward the passion and energy of both the audience and Anderson .Paak, I think.
The shot feels lively in part due to the aforementioned passion and energy, but I think it’s also due to a clear display of audience and artist engagement and enthusiasm. Anderson .Paak didn’t have to work hard to get people moving, but he still did. The audience responded in kind and that engagement really comes across.
This photo was taken for Culture Eater. You can find a review of Anderson Paak’s performance here and the corresponding gallery here. Please go check them out, as well as the other stuff that our contributors are contributing.
This is my submission into Leanne Cole‘s TPM photo challenge for this week.
The theme for this challenge is “Given to you”.
I’ve included this shot as (somewhat-related to the theme) the opportunity to shoot gigs is one given to people. Also, Anderson .Paak gave a great experience, which I feel is something more clearly representative of the theme.
I suggest checking out Leanne’s photography, as well as checking out what other people submit into the challenge.
You can find the challenges here.
I hope you enjoy.
