Editor’s note: Our in-house photographer Anurag Banerjee believes that while taking photos of live gigs, one must keep the beat in mind. “Don’t wait for the beat; predict it instead”, he says. Well, we guess that’s what he has done with this set. You will agree too when you take a look. After all, there are no rules for good photographs; there are only good photographs.

    Anurag, why B & W ?

  • Anurag

    to portray the fact that the energy out there was immense and uniform. had it been in colour, there would be a disparity of the fact owing to the fancy stage lights at night and a comparatively duller sunlight.
    besides, monochrome is class.
    Also,
    “When
    you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes.  But when
    you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!”  ~Ted
    Grant
    Hence, black and white. :)

    I am not completely approving of the quote. but out here. i did not want the picture to look good solely because of the amazing colours of the lights. i wanted to show that there was more to them than simple pretty colours and lights.
