Notes:

With the sun quickly setting, this was the first band of the day that I had to crank my settings all the way up to my usual concert settings – iso 6400 and 1/320/s (with aperture at 2.8 of course).  A couple of fill lights behind the band helped prevent them getting lost in the darkness and shadows, which was a nice addition to a mostly plain stage.

Being a hard rock/glam band, its pretty difficult to not get great shots of Black Veil Brides.  Just like when I shot Steel Panther, I saw these guys love having photos taken of them, making my job super easy.  Really the only difficult member of the band to shoot was drummer Christian Coma.  He sat behind a large drum kit, and with the other 4 guys constantly moving around the stage, a good shot of him was almost always blocked.  I did manage to get a few shots of him at least.  Say what you will about their “fake amps”, these guys do at least put on a good show.

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8

Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
