Mid week appointment to shoot Finland’s Children Of Bodom. I got them again last time they were here a few years ago at the Palace, tonight they would be treading the boards at a very packed 170 Russell/Billboard.
Children Of Bodom seem to have a pretty healthy Australian audience because as soon as the band kicked off their set, it was on for young and old.
The photo-pit was incredibly crowded so manoeuvring around became quite a chore.
I kinda have a love-hate relationship with the venues new super powerful spotlights which pour out these incredibly bright and stark columns of light that are more often than not, all over the place.
If you time it just right, you can get yourself a good shot or two, but for the most part, these beams of light that you can almost carve with a knife are a little on the annoying side.
Still, it beats the Hifi!
I came, I photographed, I left.
Not overtly confident I captured anything of note today. Photographically pretty ho-hum.
