Guido Meyer de Voltaire - Aardvarks - Wuppertal, Live Club Barmen (LCB) - 09.10.2009

After a short break Aardvarks from Bonn were up. God this guys were good and their sound and songs hit me from the first second on. Intense, great Riffs and awesome melodies, you just had the felling that they were right in your face. They even included a little instrumental in their set. If you want to check out a great Melodic Death Metal Band go to http://www.aardvarks.org/ and give those guys a chance.


Shooting Notes

The Live Club Barmen ist a really small club with low ceiling and no pit, which makes the shooting here really hard. I got lucky and the little club wasn’t packed from the front to the back, so you got enough room to walk around with a little care and get some angles on the artists. Even though I brought the 70-200 f2.8 I knew, that I wouldn’t need it. I was only shooting the 24-70 f2.8 which wasn’t actually wide enough on the Canon 40D. I really need to get myself a full frame camera and a good wide angle lens. The Light though was pretty good, at least from the back, so a flash was really a nice thing to add, even if it was just to get a little light in the faces of the guys.
I was shooting this set at ISO 800 wide open at f2.8 with a shutter speed between a 1/60 and 1/160, depending on the rapid changing light. Next to that I was trying some shutter drags while Contradition were playing… so got the aperture up to f8 and the shutter down to 1/10 and just shoot a couple of frames.
