MadCraft was the warm-up act for Bam Margera Is Fuckface Unstoppable on their gig in Helsinki, Finland. I had the chance to shoot some photos of those guys. The venue Virgin Oil is different from most of the other venues in Helsinki, since it actually has pretty good lights.

Because the original photo is quite flat, I increased the overall contrast.

Then I made the photo warmer with the SplitToning module.

I finalized the photo with a subtle vignette from the Effects module.

I am a rock photographer (camera owner) from Helsinki, Finland. I play guitar in pop punk band MadCraft and started rock photography by shooting photos of bands that we played with. As I noticed that there aren’t many music concert photography focused Lightroom presets around, I decided to share the ones that I create during my editing. Presets can be used as they are or they can be used as a starting point, so they are suitable for beginners and more advanced music photographers. If you’d like to support my work, check out the Buy Presets section! From there you can buy preset packs, which will give you a bit easier access to my presets.
