Punk Rock Band is almost the official cover band that plays solely punk rock! I went to shoot a live video for them, and of course I had to shoot some photos too. So here’s a photo of Emppu.

First I started by adjusting the white balance towards cold.

I lifted blacks with the tone curve. This is something that works really well in dark photos.

Then I went to adjust blues. I added luminance in order to increase the brightness of the photo.

Finally I went to split toning and added warmth to the highlights but left the shadows untouched.

Here’s the final photo.


Here is also the live video that I shot: Punk Rock Band – Pretty Fly (for a White Guy) [The Offspring Cover]

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.
