The Attack @ Webster Hall, NYC – 8.6.12
August 7, 2012 | Concert Photography
The Attack were one of the opening acts for the Mighty Mighty Bosstones show at Webster Hall last night. Their melodic hardcore was just what this show needed!
I’ll have a full review over at ReadJunk.com later on tonight or tomorrow so stay tune for that.
I was Webster Hall few weeks ago and the photo pit was tiny as hell. When I got inside the venue, I noticed how much bigger the pit was! I mean, this thing was ten times bigger than what it was at the Gaslight Anthem show. Either the Bosstones told Webster Hall to do this or they just anticipated a lot of crowd surfing (or both). I know I pleaded with the Bosstones to make it a big pit before the show. Thankfully I got to move around and it was glorious haha!
The lighting for the set was straight forward. Wasn’t too bright but wasn’t necessarily dark either. Lots of back lighting which is always the case at Webster Hall. Just have to know to work around it. Shoot from the sides, try to position your shots with the band in front of the back lighting; those type of things. At least that’s my approach. For this set, I used the dynamic duo: 24-70mm f2.8 and 70-200mm f2.8 I used the later once I got out of the pit and shot from the side by the merch. That proved to be the spot to be in last night since the crowd really wasn’t near there and I got to see everything perfectly.
