There were screaming teenage fan girls galore last weekend at Best Buy Theater in New York City, NY, when the rock band Black Veil Brides came to Times Square for a sold out show of their Black Mass Tour.  Just like the last two times they were in New York, I was there to photograph this band with a wild fan base…

Notes on photographing Black Veil Brides:

As you can see, I shot a LOT of Black Veil Brides’ set.  This was actually the first time I shot them when they were a headliner, and I wanted to make it count.

The lighting was pretty easy to work with, but interesting enough to allow for some dynamic shots along the way.  The one annoyance was that drummer Christian Coma was verrry far back, so getting multiple sharp shots of him was somewhat difficult (especially with the rest of the band on stage often blocking my shots!)  He did notice each time I was shooting him though, and went ahead and “posed” for me with some tongue.

I focused a good bit on the band’s vocalist and front man, Andy Biersack for the majority of shooting them, for obvious reasons.  I feel like thanks to the great headliner lighting and general layout of the Best Buy Theater stage, I came awy with way more great shots this time than the previous times I’ve shot BVB.

Equipment:

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