You have no idea how excited I was to shoot Bring Me the Horizon again.  After shooting them at Warped Tour, I finally took some time to sink my teeth in to their new album Sempiternal, and even is plenty of metal purists hate it and them, I totally dig the hell out of it.  So now with the songs constantly jamming in my head, and a photo pit that wasn’t packed full of people to the point I could not even move, I took another swing at shooting them for night two of their sold out show at Best Buy Theater in New York City…

Notes:

The lighting for Bring Me the Horizon was both incredibly awesome, and totally brutal.

Trying to nail the timing on the strobes alongside the bright blue or dark green lights was not an easy task – but when I did, things were magicial.

Before I was set to shoot this, I was super worried the pit would be packed as it was for when I shot BMTH at Warped Tour.  Fortunately, there were only about 8 total – which compared to the 40 something at Warped, was nothing.  PLUS, the barrier was pushed back so it gave the security and the photographers plenty of space between one another.  This was lucky as well, as I was slip sliding around on all the confetti that was on the ground (which caused me to slip and hit the merch guy/photographer for Issues in the head with my 80-200 lens – if you see this man, again, I’m super sorry!)

Also – damn, I LOVE shooting at Best Buy Theater.  Easily my favorite NYC venue to shoot at.  Place rules.

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8
Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
