Photo of the day by Sven Mainzer

Film:  Big Up 
Using:  Oggl 

"Grosse Freiheit 36 is a legendary music club and concert venue in Hamburg, Germany. For a while now, I've really been enjoying listening to Frank Turner and his band 'The Sleeping Souls'. Seeing as they were playing in this quaint location with about 2,000 guests, I knew that this gig would be a blast!
With everybody dancing, singing, and bouncing, I shot some photos without even seeing what I was snapping because the whole crowd was constantly in motion. In short, I was just holding my iPhone up high, hoping and trying to obtain a good capture. I didn't shoot more than 5 or 6 shots with Oggl, because, as you can see in the photo, it was a welcomed (and rare) kind of crowd that can enjoy itself without everyone holding up electronic gadgets throughout the performance. Asides from this, I too desired to dance and was afraid of dropping my iPhone."
