Otep - Live 8 by krash Otep - Live 8 by krash
Otep Shamaya of Otep

First, the show ROCKED hard, band was great and seemed to not only have a great sense of humor to go along with their creative anarchy, but to just be some great folks to know.

I was lucky enough to be their guest for the show with a photo pass. Did not get me behind the barrier for some safer close up shots. I shot from within the crowd and off to the sides of the stage.

I shot about 90% of the night with manual focus lenses on my DSLR. I have about 200 shots from Tuesday night to edit, but I wanted to get at least one up tonight.

I do NOT use flash during live performance shoots, it is not how the artist intended for you to see them or the show and it takes away from the feel of a live shot most of the time....in my opinion. In the future I want to have some units I can setup to match the lighting being used by the band so I can get some better shutter speeds at lower ISO's to cut down on the noise/grain.

Sorry guys no autographs this time around, maybe on some prints from this shoot though :) Otep has a standing invitation to come to my studio for a shoot anytime they are in town.


Band: Otep
Location: Pop's in Sauget, IL
Equipment: Canon 350D w/Canon 28-135mm IS USM, Helios 44M 58mm f/2.0 manual focus lenses

I really like the silhouettes in front. It gives it... Some feeling. Like, it's not just a band playing on a stage. It's a show... it's alive.

This is blasphemy! I always thought that photo pass = behind the barrier.
