Fabian Wallenfang - Laid in Ashes – Oberhausen, Helvete – 23.10.2009

Next up was Laid in Ashes. I would be lying if I said, that I like the Band. I love them. Starting from their debutalbum on, I’m a fan of the Band and when I got the time and the chance to see them I’ll go. The just got an enormous live presents and the show is up on the high end. Especially Singer Fabian is always a blast. Not only for his intense voice, but he is also always fun to shot, do to the fact, that he is constantly pulling faces. Jochen, the Bands regular Bassplayer, wasn’t here today, so Klaus of Execrate was helping out.


Shooting Notes

Shooting at the Helvete Club always requires using flash, do to the fact, that the light they got isn’t really bright and you would end up with shutter speeds of 1/20 or slower, even wide open, to get all the ambient light in the picture… naturally that is no option, do to the fact, that those shots would be completely unsharp. So using a flash, bumping the shutter up to 1/60 at ISO 800 and f2.8 made everything work out. Also shooting from the sides to the middle of the stage was necessary, because the lightrig was not really wide and concentrated to the center of the stage. When shooting to the sides you would end up with a picture just lit by flash with no stage light included. You had to watch out a little because the lightguy was going a lot of times for an really intense single colour wash (mostly red) and together with all the stagesmoke it was hard to focus and really cut through with the flash. Do to the really low celling you could bounce the flash really nicely and got a great fall-off towards the feet of the artists. Not a thing for every picture, but nice to get some different shots.
