With a new vocalist screaming at the front, the blue haired Canadian beauty Alissa White-Gluz,  Arch Enemy stormed into New York City’s Best Buy Theater in Times Square.  I of course, could not miss the chance to shoot the band with some new young energy to lift the spirits of New York’s metal heads…

Notes on photographing Arch Enemy:

Lighting for Arch Enemy proved to be both very challenging, but very fun at the same time.  With a lot of strobe and red light dominating the lighting for the first three songs, I was constantly switching my settings all of the place just trying to make sure I didn’t miss an exposure.

Alissa White-Gluz is simply fantastic, taking over Arch Enemy from the band’s former female frontwoman, Angela Gossow.   Alissa certainly dominates the stage completely while she is on it.  Her husband Doyle was in the crowd as well, watching her every move, which I thought was pretty sweet.  He even liked all my photos of her on instagram, how adorbs.

Equipment:

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