Even though it’s something I very, very rarely do, photographing DJs is certainly something else from photographing bands.  In this case we have Drama Club, who was opening for Black Veil Brides during the Black Mass tour at Best Buy Theater in New York City…

Notes on photographing Drama Club:

This was… unique.

For starters, the “DJ Booth” was set up at the center of the stage, resting between the stage barrier/pit and the stage.  This meant, as a photographer, you had to choose either stage left, or stage right to shoot the group from the pit.

I ended up heading out towards the end of the 2nd song to get shots of the entire set up and both DJs.  They had a screen behind them showing some of the lyrics and whatnot, which felt necessary to get photos of.

Equipment:

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