FranKo use words like “powerful”, “adrenaline”, “straight to the point” and “explosive” to describe themselves. And their music is certainly hard hitting and err… powerful! So I wanted to do something slightly different, when I recently photographed them perform in front of a packed audience.
Whereas I normally strive for “good” exposure, I decided to let the pictures be underexposed to the point of losing almost all detail, and instead focused on using the colourful spotlights as rim lights to give pictures with just an outline of the silhouetted band members.
It was a bit hit and miss, with plenty of failed attempts. But eventually luck decided to shine it’s light (if you’ll pardon the pun) and gave me a handful of frames where it worked.
