Following support from Papa Roach and Sick Puppies, Breaking Benjamin played to a packed out arena with a legion of fans singing along with every word.
Breaking Benjamin was a fun performance with plenty of challenges to keep photographer's on their toes. Lighting was what I call the “bruiser” combo – red washes alternating with blue and purple. Overall, very intense lighting dominated this set with lots of deep color washes.
Singer Benjamin Burnley was flanked by two monitors, and favored his left side for taking a step up to rock out. With a five-foot stage, the Nikon 24-70mm was the perfect lens for capturing this action. The Nikon 70-200mm and 14-24mm came out for a few shots, but the midrange zoom dominated this set.
As usual, this show was the standard three songs, no flash for photography.
