Elton John rocks Pula Amphitheatre

I just love concerts in roman amphitheatres, the feeling inside those arenas is always amazing. This time Sir Elton John visited the Amphitheatre in Pula, Croatia and finished his leg of European tour with two and a half hours of great playing. Originally scheduled to perform alone, he changed his mind and came with the whole band which was actually great as it gave so much power to already powerfull concert. For us it was work as usuall, except for the fact that when you're shooting a piano player he's usually seating in one place and looking down on piano. You're more or less stuck to one position and wait untill he picks up his head and looks towards audience. It is hard to make different pictures, so i focused on his emotions and typical moments. Well Elton did jump around and on a piano a bit after we were no longer in a pit. Pretty cool stuff and great night at work :)

Welcome Pula!

Typical Elton

The moment to catch

We always love those kind of looks from an artist

A bit of walking around the stage

the guy seems, like he isn't getting any older, he looks the same like he did I don't know, 10 years ago. :)

what was the light like? white, strong enough or was it dark?

300 mm or was it possible to work with 70 - 200 mm lens?
