Severe Torture - Death Feast Open Air 2010 - Live, Festival, Show

With Severe Torture there was another element of a bit of modern Death/Grind introduced to the festival. Even though the Band was from the Netherlands the swedish elements of their songs couldn’t be denied. I for my part really loved their songs and their show and I’ll definitly keep track of their touring schedule to get a change to see and shoot them again.


Shooting Notes

Severe Torture were quite active on stage, so I wanted to keep my shutter speed and my aperture as high as possible to freeze the fast movements of the Band and also have a bigger depth of field to get the guys in focus while they were headbanging. So I bumped up my ISO between 400 and 640 and got my aperture set to f4 to f5. That gave me shutter speeds between 1/400 and 1/800 of a second, which was enough to get some good frames. Also with the Band standing at the edge of the stage for most of the gig, I was able to get the 10-22 out again, next to the 24-70 and the 70-200. By now the sun was shining right on the edge of the stage at a really steep angle, so I really had to watch out. As soon as one of the guys on stage stept into the light, he immediately blew out and I had to adjust my settings fast before he got back into the shadow.
