Electronic and hardcore?  How the heck does a band mix those?  Well, I See Stars does, and manages to do it pretty well, even if the stage lightning is all over the place…

Notes:

This one was semi-brutal for shooting!

However, that was only for trying to get individual shots – for overview shots of the entire stage?  Beautiful.

The light was entirely from a few strobes on stage, and these 4 pillars that crafted light throughout the Gramercy Theatre  in random directions.  For the music, it works really, really well.  For trying to get photographs of each band member on stage, especially of a band that move around constantly like I See Stars?  No well at all!

However, this was a case where I didn’t get frustrated, simply because it wasn’t the fact that the light was low and lame, but rather unique and interesting.  It just made getting a great sharp focused shot hard.

By the way, my settings were all over the place, so I can’t even give a base for that.

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8

Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
