DISCLAIMER: Photos contain inordinate amounts of hair.
I really tried to get more photos of faces, but it was really difficult. Cannibal Corpse literally let their hair down at House Of Blues, not to mention whipping it everywhere. In addition to hair, devil horns were flying all over the place during this brutal set.
Photographer’s Notes: I learned a few new things shooting this band. Even though the lighting was nice and bright and didn’t fluctuate too much, I still had difficulty trying to freeze motion of the hair whips, even at 1/200th of a second. I’d have to really crank ISO to speed up my shutter. Personally, I prefer grain over blur, so I shot 3200 or more.
I even had to rapid fire a couple sequences of whips in hopes of catching one shot with stopped motion, and maybe a little face showing. Maybe if I’m bored one day I’ll string them together for an amusing animated gif :)
