Kamelot - Bochum, Zeche - 19.06.2009

Kamelot is one of the few Power Metal Bands that I still listen too. Mostly because I got into them when I was still listening to a lot of Power Metal (which isn’t the case nowadays), so when ever they are in the area I try to see them live. During the last couple of years they got better and better and their Singer Roy Kahn has the form of his live. A couple of years ago he missed more then a couple of notes during a set, but now he pretty much nailes all those notes right on. Next to that, the Band always puts on a great show and the people go crazy, the energy in the hall is always intense, espiacally when playing in such a small venue as the Zeche.
A nice surprise was the guest appereance of Epica Singer Simone Simons. Not only does she stands out with her red hair, but for a girl she really knows how to use them metal-style.


Shooting Notes

While shooting Xandria a couple minutes earlier this evening I was really scared of having to deal with such bad light again, but the whole battery of spots was turned on, so there was much more light then before. Still not enough, but better then before.
The Lens was the 24-70 again and later the 70-200 from the balcony. This time I was able to keep the ISO most of the time at 800, which is my normal shooting mode on concerts with the 40D, and I got acceptable shutter speeds. Do to the fact, that the frontlight was missing again, as soon as the guys got close to the edge of the stage their faces went black. Bassplayer Sean Tibbitt was leaning into my lense and Roy Khan was directly singing into it, but I wasn’t able to use the images do to the fact, that their faces where pitch black as soon as they leaned forward.
