Slipknot @

This was a fun show to shoot. Lots of light and animated characters. I only wish I had a little more time to shoot. I spent a lot of time, probably too much, trying to get great shots of Corey Taylor... #8... the lead singer. His white mask sort of messed with me. I could get wonderfully exposed photos, but his mask would be washed out. It was reflecting too much light. So with that, I probably missed some other cool stuff. But I was really set on getting some good shots of him.

The band was pretty great. I'm not a fan, don't really know their stuff actually... but I left thinking I could dig it. Lots of people on stage doing different stuff. Right as the photogs were being escorted out, the 2 drummers on the sides of the stage lifted up into the air on scissor lifts. It was pretty cool. Again... I wish I had more time.

Camera wise... I was set at ISO 800 again, I always start there to be safe and then fiddle with the shutter speeds. Which varied from about 1/50 to 1/250 depending on who I was shooting. I again got to borrow a 70-200mm f/2.8 for the first song. Such a fun lense.
