We were supporting Simple Plan with MadCraft while they were playing in Finland. As I was on the stage, I gave my camera to our lead singer’s brother Ted who shot this picture.

In my opinion it was shot with too wide angle, so I cropped it a lot to show only Arto, MadCraft’s bass player.

I started by pushing white balance towards blue.

Then I used HSL/Color/B&W module to adjust the orange a bit.

Finally I used split toning to add some traditional blockbuster vibe to the photo.

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.
