Lighting was excellent. Very little red, and a lot of good white/yellow.

They didn't make heavy use of strobes - and I think most of those in the pit didn't bother with flash even though they had the choice/weights attached to top of camera.

I tend to keep reasonably close to the actual lighting.

Red is annoying because it's not registered very well by the cameras - hence you lose detail. This is why a lot of my red images are also desaturated and tweaked to try and recover as much as possible.

White, Blue, Green and Yellow are much nicer to work with.

In addition - as a B&W shooter - red renders skin tones very badly. Blue-green light suppresses blemishes *and* those are the colours pan/panortho film is most responsive to. It's a win-win.

I wonder how many bands actually know this, and how many would respond to being told, you will look much better in the photos if you make this simple change which won't cost you anything since you'd be setting up coloured lights anyway.
