Last weekend the weather was a world of extremes in the pop photography. Two shows that makes clear how great the box can be, but also how dramatic it is now often. On Friday I was in Tivoli by Emilie Autumn. Nice front, Unfortunately no real fotopit, So I had to stand in the crowd. But it is reasonably front so enough to use my 24-70mm lens.

Two songs later, it's ready and it allows the photographer again pack up and go home. For the rest of the concert meepikken there is now hardly more…There you are ten minutes later outside at Ahoy, with a series of photographs that are the same as those of your colleagues and where nothing else it can. No, then only a picture of Emilie…
