U2 captured beautifully on the Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Peter Neill has sent us this really cool set of Canon EOS 5D Mark II photos he shot of U2 in Sheffield.

Peter said: “I was lucky enough to get a chance to shoot U2 in Sheffield, UK. A short flight from where I live in Ireland. It was a phenomenal gig with beautiful lighting which made for a great combination of light and shadow. I shot the whole thing with a 5D MK2 (which I love) and a Canon 70-200L 2.8 IS, with the exception of a couple of shots with a Sigma 2.8 15mm Fisheye and a Canon 50mm 1.8. I stuck with RAW which was ideal for this, as some of the lighting was very very strong, and RAW gave me the power to pull back highlights where I needed to. From a creative perspective I love gigs like this, the freedom to use light like a tool by using selective composition to add atmosphere.

All in all I'm pretty happy with the photos, and I hope to get more gig work by using these in my portfolio!
