Round 2 for shooting The Chariot, this time in bright summer light instead of a poorly lit stage and theater.  Four crazy guys, and a crowd ready to explode set the stage for these mathcore geniuses…

Notes:

Thrashing and jump all around the stage and the crowd, I was a bit more ready this time around for shooting The Chariot.  “Completely Unpredictable”, is the best way to describe their performance, with instruments, hair, body parts, and everything else flying all over the place.

There aren’t very many time where the guys in The Chariot will stand still, including drummer David Kennedy, who often will jump out of his seat, and just throw parts of his kit around, or just go relax somewhere else mid-song.  There are not very many bands that better display what hardcore music is all about.

Because of the bright sun providing me with plenty of light, I kicked my shutter speed up to about 1/1000/s for The Chariot, in an attempt to freeze all the frantic movement I knew the band would be doing.  Even still, I had a few blurry shots I had to delete, but damn if they are not incredibly fun to shoot…

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8

Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
