Adam Dutkiewicz - Killswitch Engage - Live Music Photos - Oberhausen, Turbinenhalle - 09.12.2009

When Killswitch Engage entered the stage, the crowd in the venue went wild. From the first moment on the Band gave everything and justified their position as co-headliner without a doubt. Next to being great musicians the Band is quite entertaining… led by the man who single-handedly brought the cape back into Metal (as Anders Fridén of In Flames put it so adequate). Even Singer Howard Jones had to shake his head in wonder a couple of times listening to Adam Dutkiewicz.


Shooting Notes

Getting along with the light this evening was quite hard. In Flames brought quite a big lightrig and the stage was blasted with light. 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.
This set was shot at ISO 800 and f2.8, but the shutterspeed varied quite a lot. Most of the time I was shooting at 1/200 to 1/320 but for some pictures I went as high as 1/1600 or low as 1/60 trying to deal with the light.
