Heaven Shall Burn don’t tour a lot… or at least it was that way not long ago. With their last album ‘Iconoclast’ and the live dvd ‘Bildersturm – Iconoclast II’ they seemed to be around quite a lot. Hey, I don’t want to complain and to be honest I’m quite happy about that. Those two last outputs of the Band are so extremely good, that I can’t help starting to headbang, even when I think about them. Seeing the Band live, makes that experience even better. Heaven Shall Burn are always a blast to watch and that was no different this evening.


Shooting Notes

Getting along with the light this evening was quite hard. In Flames brought a big lightrig and blasted the stage away with it. Unfortunatly there seemed to be only two options in the repertoire of the lightdesigner. It was on or off – so the exposure went from nearly black to surface of the sun in moments. This made it quite hard getting the camera setup right. But even when you nailed the exposure you still had to deal with the fact that most of the time the artists were lite only from one side and the other side of their body disappeared into darkness.
When Heaven Shall Burn began their set, shooting started to get hard. The light wasn’t as even as it was before with Everytime I Die and there seemed to be just a mix of blue and purple spots. Using an ISO of 1250 I was close to my unity-gain ISO and I didn’t want to go higher, even though one or two stops more would have helped controlling the ambient a bit more, but the noise would have gotten out of hand. So I kept the shutter speed at 1/160 most of the time and the aperture was at f2.8. I was shooting most of the set with the 24-70 and got the 70-200 out for the last song, to get some close-ups.
