Markus Lempsch - Exposed Guts – Oberhausen, Helvete – 23.10.2009

First Band of the day was Exposed Guts from Bochum. Normaly a foursome, the Bassplayer got lost on the way to the club and so the rest of the Band entered the Stage with a bit of delay. Do to that, their playing time was quite short and they really had to speed it up… well, when playing technical Death Metal, that comes naturally. Even though the Band seemed to have listened a bit to much to the old Death Records, I was stunned. They played an awesome set with unbelievable great Songs… Check them out! This is no suggestion, this is an order (Exposed Guts)!


Shooting Notes

Shooting at the Helvete Club always requires using flash, do to the fact, that the light they got isn’t really bright and you would end up with shutter speeds of 1/20 or slower, even wide open, to get all the ambient light in the picture… naturally that is no option, do to the fact, that those shots would be completely unsharp. So using a flash, bumping the shutter up to 1/60 at ISO 800 and f2.8 made everything work out. Also shooting from the sides to the middle of the stage was necessary, because the lightrig was not really wide and concentrated to the center of the stage. When shooting to the sides you would end up with a picture just lit by flash with no stage light included. You had to watch out a little because the lightguy was going a lot of times for an really intense single colour wash (mostly red) and together with all the stagesmoke it was hard to focus and really cut through with the flash. Do to the really low celling you could bounce the flash really nicely and got a great fall-off towards the feet of the artists. Not a thing for every picture, but nice to get some different shots.
