Music Isn't Just Music

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/200 second F/7.1 ISO 400 70 mm


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

To focus on the drums and not on the musicians is a very original bet which is successful in this case. Nice colors too.
