Taken at a live show. This is Micky Mo Fo from the band Three Star Seed. The venue has a nice black material draped accross the back of the stage.

I lit the stage using two portable flash units triggered by a radio slave. They were strapped to the light bars that shine on the performers.

First I cropped the image. This is actually about half of the frame, as the lead singer was originally in the shot as well to the left of the frame. PP was to clone out a white strip above the amp where the black cloth had separated. Cloned out a mic stand that was showing just below the end of the bass, and about half of a sports bag that was on the stage floor to the right of the amp. Then burn the edges of the frame. I then applied lucisart filter to really make the highlights pop.

Carl hammered out the final notes in his set to the thunderous roar of the crowd. He'd put on a performance that was unlike any other. He'd hit every note. He'd slammed every whammy. He'd nailed every bridge.

With a final twang, the song was done and he raised his arms in victory. The crowd went wild, and he knew that a new contract was his.

He looked at the screen. 100%. YOU ROCK! you shouted at him silently.

He was a Guitar Hero God.

I think that the equipment behind the guitarist competes too much.
