I have never shot a concert in my life. Sure, I’ve done one small show for Canadian Music Week last year, but it wasn’t high profile, and I definitely didn’t take it as seriously as I did this one.
The opening bands didn’t have the best lights for their sets, but I’ve managed to take some half-decent photos anyway. Goatwhore was especially hard to shoot. However, Behemoth’s lights were fantastic, and the guys really worked the stage so it was amazing to shoot, and to be this close to their unholy magnetism.
I would definitely love to shoot another show soon, and if I like it well enough, maybe I’ll get a lens that is more appropriate for concert photography (I shot this with a 50mm wide lens).
