With two new band members, the post hardcore band Chiodos has started chugging along with ADTR as part of the Parks & Devastation tour, and I had my first chance at shooting them…

Notes on shooting Chiodos:

Oddly enough, this was my first time covering Chiodos, even though they’ve been in the New York area quite a few times in the past few months.

They’re certainly an entertaining band to shoot, especially with the shoe-less guitarist Pat McMananman flying all over the stage (during this tour, on ADTR’s AstroTurf .)

The lighting was decent, but nothing all too amazing.  A lot of red mix with some spot fill.  Essentially the kind of light common for an opener of a big tour.  One of my favorite things was how interactive Craig Owens was with the crowd – often moving to the front of the stage to get as close to the fans and crowd surfers as possible.  The pit near the front of the stage was rather small though, so my only regret is not getting any good center stage shots (you can pretty easily see that everything is shot mainly stage left or right.)

Equipment:

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