OK. 3OH!3 had wolves on stage that shot green lasers out of their eyes on the The Too Fast for Love Tour. ‘Nuff said.
Shooting 3OH!3 was an incredibly difficult shoot. After photographing Travie McCoy's set, which had basically zero frontlighting, I thought that I'd had the most difficult shoot of the night behind me. I was wrong.
Sean and Nat of 3OH!3 are basically like two ninjas with microphones bouncing around the stage, playing some sort of Alice In Wonderland version of musical chairs. Between the blasting lights, very quick movements, and general high-octane feel of this show, photography is no easy feat.
Luckily for me, as insanely hard as it is to photograph not one but two rapid-fire frontmen with spastic lighting, 3OH!3's dynamism also makes for great photography when everything aligns.
I shot this set with the Nikon D3 and D700 using the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 and Nikon 14-24mmm f/2.8. Exposure for this set was between ISO 4000 and ISO 12800 for the most part at f/2.8.
