Seeing as how these guys were rocking jet black pompadours, I had a good feeling about photographing Dommin. As it turned out, hairstyles aside, these goth metal rockers put on one of the best performances of the night.
Lighting for Dommin was tough, but not unworkable. Mono-color lights dominated the three songs press were allowed to shoot, with blues and red used during the majority.
LED arrays were the main sources of lights, with setups on the sides and back of the stage. Still, the treatment was bright enough to make this show f/2.8 territory – if anything, one nice thing about single-color treatments is the ability to get away with more conservative exposures.
Due to the stage setup, the Nikon 24-70mm was perfect for this set. 24mm was wide enough for full length shots, while 70mm handled the tighter snaps with ease.
