Valdimar – Iceland Airwaves 2011

Valdimar is Icelandic for ‘strong ocean’. It’s an apt name for a band that sounds like a powerful force of nature.

Photographer’s Notes

Over the summer, I had the unique opportunity to catch Valdimar play at a tiny bar in Húsavík–a small fishing town in the north of Iceland. I was blown away by their energetic performance, and especially impressed with crooner Valdimar Guðmundsson (for whom the band is named) and guitar wizard Ásgeir Aðalsteinsson. I eagerly anticipated their performance on the big stage at Airwaves.

This set was bathed mostly in red light and I still love these shots. Never thought I’d say that. My exposure was about 1/200 and f/3.5 at ISO 1600.
