Ever since I shot her at the Black Cat way back in 2008, I’ve been looking forward to shooting Lykke Li in a large venue and the upgraded lighting that would come with it. Well, a few weeks ago I finally got my chance, but she chose to play in the dark.
The stage set up was actually quite nice, with long black curtains all over the sparse stage. The stage was mostly backlit, which provided a dramatic look but made conditions hard to get “the shot.” Lykke also had her hair down so getting a clean shot of her face was a whole different challenge. That said, she is a very energetic and charismatic performer, and always a joy to shoot.
