Sometime in high school, my friend (now husband) introduced me to Metallica’s Symphony & Metallica album. I loved it. Since then, I have been a fan and have wanted to see Metallica live. I finally got my chance a week ago when they played their first of two shows at Allstate Arena in Chicago. (more…)
Last weekend, I shot a benefit show – Cancel Out Cancer – at the Metro. A bunch of great Midwest bands were playing in support of the cause. One of the bands I was most excited about seeing was Quietdrive since they haven’t been playing much while recording their new CD this past year (which comes out on October 14th!!)
Of course, the light was the worst for their set, despite their main support slot. I parked my cameras on 3200ISO, dropped my shutter speed to 1/80 or 1/100 (for those occasional light flares) and stayed on f/2.8. I adore the Metro, but I’m looking forward to better lighting when Quietdrive returns to Chicago on October 29th, when they perform at the House of Blues with Mest.
More photos to come of Quietdrive, Treaty of Paris, Company of Thieves, and House of Heroes!
