Photography Notes:

As was expected for the group, lighting was minimal with the artist favoring an overall dark, moody, and flat lighting treatment which compliments the groups aggressive performance and songwriting well. It challenges the best of photographers who must shoot in near darkness with the exception of fire and and handful of gratuitous strobe flares. Limited to the first 3 songs, metering and exposures fell about 1/200 F2.8 ISO6400 during the “well lit” moments of the shooting period. Ouch.
