Synyster Gates, Avenged Sevenfold - Mayhem Fest

I wasn't entirely impressed by this year's Rockstar Mayhem Festival lineup, but decided to go anyway, because I guess after seeing/shooting Avenged Sevenfold four times earlier this year, I got attached. Not to mention, I FINALLY got to see Korn. Anyway - I seemed to accidentally follow Syn around this entire show. It was like every time I moved, he would swap spots with Johnny or Zacky, not that I should be complaining!

This was the 8/3 date at Bristow, VA.

i always wonder, on those types of concert photography, if it is shot like this, or edited somehow... i really like those lights with kinda spiky edges, if u know what i mean... and i am not able to shoot it like that, dunno where i did wrong :D

This is very close to how it was actually shot. I do some minor post processing to adjust contrast and color vibrancy, but I don't do anything major like add lights or flares. This was my fifth time shooting Avenged Sevenfold this year alone, so I was fairly well prepared for what to expect and what settings would work well. Plus with well known headline bands at large venues, the light show is typically much more impressive and easier to shoot. :)
