I first saw the Kreator a few years ago at Best Buy Theater in New York City (co-headlining with Accept.)  Imagine my surprise when I saw them again at the same venue, this time opening for Arch Enemy.  And it wouldn’t be a Kreator show without plenty of strobe and red lights…Thrash metal band Kreator performing at Best Buy Theater in New York CIty, NY.

Notes on photographing Kreator:

For these German thrash metal gentlemen, the light was very red, and very packed with strobe.  There was a bit of fog at times, and that’s just what Kreator does.

Quick note: there was dust on my sensor during this, and it was noticeable in a few of these shots, which I had to take some extra time to clone stamp out.  So word to all: make sure your sensors are clear of visible dust before shooting – always!

Equipment:

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