Live Music – Memphis May Fire @ Best Buy Theater

On their co-headlining tour with Yellowcard, Memphis May Fire came through New York City, playing at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square.  For my first time, I got to shoot this fun metalcore band with some trippy lighting…

Notes on photographing Memphis May Fire:

The light for this one was nutty – lots of lasers, laser beams, and beams going all over the place.  Add that with some fog machines, and things were rough for a band that completely controls the stage like Memphis May Fire does.

One thing that was a little annoying for me was that frontman/vocalist Matty Mullins tends to hold his microphone very close to his mouth 95% of the time.  It’s just the way his sings, but I like to get shots with the mic separated from the mouth… not too easy to do with Matty.

Equipment:

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