By now it was 3:30 am and I was exhausted from the long day, but I really wanted to see Ahab. With their latest Album ‘The Divinity Of Oceans’ the Band released a masterpiece of Doom Metal, so hard, crushing and slow, but still filled with so much energy and suspense, that it is hard to stand. I was curious to see how this would work out on stage, especially at this late hour. All doubts got swept away as the first cords rang through the tent and the last survivors of the day were in for an awesome show.


Shooting Notes

Well, Ahab are a Doom Metal Band and so there wasn’t a lot of action on stage. I was shooting the 24-70 as well as the 70-200, for some close ups, at f2.8, ISO 1000 and a shutter speed between 1/100 to 1/250 of a second, throwing in some flash from time to time, to get some light into the faces of the guys, because the light was, again, pretty moody and dark.
