I got permission from Hawkeye to shoot them at The Outpost in Kent. This was my second time shooting these guys since the closing of Peabody's in Cleveland. They're a High-Energy Electronic Rock group from Lakewood, Ohio. Their lead singer, Erika Lauren and boyfriend, Ian provide high energy vocals that make you wanna start fist pumping. Here are my favorite shots from their performance.
Nikon 24-70 f/2.8
The first two bands, I was shooting around ISO 2,000-3600. I was able to dial my aperture from 2.8 to 4 when all the lights were working great. As soon as Hawkeye went on, some of the key lighting was turned off, forcing me to bump the ISO to 6400. Sometimes I'm a little nervous going this high, from fear of too much noise, but luckily my camera faired well under the poor lighting. Plus, I could always fix it in post. Another downside, the lighting not synced to songs or little consisted patterns, so there was a lot of guess work involved. Nonetheless, I was really happy with the turnout.
