Last weekend, I was – once again – working for Nikon. Just this time it was… special – at the Donauinselfest which is (as far as I know) the largest open air festival in Europe – plus, the whole thing is for free. There’re like a dozen or so stages – most of them being rather small in size. However, there’s also a stage which is run by FM4 which is an alternative radio station here in Austria. Anyhoo, pictures from Friday and Sunday (been shooting a wedding on Saturday):

Nikon is sexy.

The light was simply fantastic – so lots of random snaps.

I guess he wasn’t feeling too well.

Waxolucionists (hope I got it right this time).

Jerking around (off) in the backstage area.

“That flash is highly annoying.”

My beloved coworker made me shoot that. Blame her.

Photo by Lauri.

I forgot her name. Sorry.

And I forgot their name too.

But he claimed to be hungover (I believed him) – which made him one of us.

Quality food becomes and art installation.

And I – not too surprising – forgot their name too.

Funny stuff.  Some lovely guy set the folder name on the D700 to 9999; I shot frame DSC_9999 and right after that the camera said “full” regardless of what flashcard I insert. Course, I didn’t figure what’s wrong hence the next frames were taken with the D300. Solution: Manually set the folder name “0001” or something. Fuck.

Photo by Simon. Obviously, some serious business was going on. As ever.

And – of course – it started to rain. A lot.

More rain. And a tiny bit of art. ISO6400 is not too impressive on the D300…

Smoke + weird smell… oh well, it’s festival time.

And that’s what it’s all for.

Finally, Deichkind. Hell, I was so pissed that the D700 wasn’t “working” because I really could’ve used the clean high-ISO performance. Most shots were taken at ISO6400 because Deichkind digs speed or something similar.

For more photos, please check out this and that (flash galleries that feature a few more frames).

It was my first time shooting concerts, so I’ve learned quite a lot. Especially loving the 3D-Tracking of the new Nikon AF-System.

Hope you like some of the frames.

Have a funtastic weekend,

    Some awesome shots there, did you do any processing besides resizing (and perhaps sharpening?) to them?
