Ashes Divide @ Projekt Revolution

Ashes Divide @ Projekt Revolution

Led by Billy Howerdel of A Perfect Circle fame, Ashes Divide laid down a fiery set on the main stage of Projekt Revolution. Following the Street Drum Corps, the band launched into a heavy, epic set of rock that proved to be just what fans needed.

With a big, atmospheric production, the stage treatment was the compliment to the band's driving sound. Ashes Divide is currently touring in support of their 2008 release, Keep Telling Myself It's Alright.

Photographer's Notes:

Due to an incredibly thick treatment of smoke and deep color washes, this gig was a very interesting challenge. One initial response to this was to go wide on many of the shots, which gradually gave way to tighter shots as the lighting and smoke calmed down.

Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8S:
The 24-70mm is my go-to lens. The range is ideal for stage front photography and the image quality is superb.

Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.

Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
