Miland 'Mille' Petrozza - Kreator - Rock Hard Festival 2010 - rhf2010

I was scared when I read before the show, that Kreator might play an oldschool set to celebrate their 25 Bandanniversary. I really like the Band, but I can’t get along with their older albums. I just can’t stand the sound of those 80s thrashmetal cds (eventhough for most people those are the only true thrashmetal recordings ever made). But I got lucky and Kreator played mostly new Material, except for a couple of songs. Overall the Show was absolutly awesome. I was not sure if they would be able to outplay Accept which played the co-headliner spot this day, but they did.

Shooting Notes

Shooting Kreator is always an absolut pain in the ass, but in comparison to their last gig I shoot at Summer Breeze Open Air the stage was a bit lower this time and so I was able to get a bit more in the frame then just the upper body of the guys. But that was all I was about to get handed to me. Again the Band only used red light coming from a low angle. A bit of green and blue in the background gave a bit of seperation, but that was it. Shooting wide open at f2.8 and 1/320 of a second I had to dial in ISO ratings between 1000 and 1600 to get everything bright enough. Still I had to push the files about a stop more in postprocessing, raising the filllight and boosting the blacks to make the images work. In between there was a bit of stroboscope light and the only chance to get some white light onto the guys, so I bumped up my framerate and fired away trying to capture at least a couple of bright frames.
