Miland Mille Petrozza - Kreator - Summer Breeze Open Air 2009

Kreator are back at the top. With the revival of Thrashmetal in the last couple of years and albums that got better and better the Bands audience got quite big again and not only the people that started listening to the Band when they released ‚Pleasure to Kill‘ where in the pit this evening, there was also quite a big percentage of young listeners that weren’t even born when the album was released. Aggressiv as ever Kreator started the evening with „Hordes Of Chaos“ and got better and better with every Song they played.


Shooting Notes

Shooting Kreator was a pain in the ass. A while ago the Band decided to go for really dark and moody stagelook with mostly redlight from the bottom (and even that was rare). Combined with the fact, that the stage wasn’t lower as before I got quite a hard time getting the images I needed. I was shooting at ISO 800, wide open at f2.8 and a shutter speed of 1/200. Sound not that bad at the first moment, but I had to tweak the images quite a bit in postprocessing to get them bright enough. I could have gone with a slower shutter speed, but this was not possible do to the fact, that I was shooting this set with the 70-200. Also the Band was quite active moving around and the amount of blurry pictures was high enough even at 1/200. Also there was a lot of stage smoke all the time, which really took down the contrast of the images and made it hard to focus correctly a lot of times.
