It may have taken them a cancellation or two before they got there, but the mighty earth rockers Clutch came to The Paramount in Huntington, NY last night to rock everyone’s to their core, and I was there to shoot them…Hard rock band Clutch performing at The Paramount in Huntington, NY.

Notes on photographing Clutch:

With just one other guy in a rather large photo pit, plenty of beautiful colorful light, and a rock steady band, shooting Clutch this time around was a total breeze.

While Dan Maines and Tim Sult tend to remain rather still as they play, drummer Jean-Paul Gaster is quite active; and of course frontman/vocalist Neil Fallon is all over the place (when he’s not also playing guitar at the same time.)

Not really much else to say about this – they put on a solid show (which I stayed the entire show for), had solid lighting, and shooting them this time was much easier than when I shot them a year ago – with a lot less other photographers and a lot less security.  Only positive about that show (was was at Terminal 5 in NYC) was overview shots – which I’m not allowed to take at The Paramount.

Equipment:

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