This report ain’t pretty. Might be more of a documentation of absurdity, pain and suffering…and of destruction.
TOP gave the photographers two songs, short ones, to cover “The Bandito Tour”. And I must say this was the most challenging shoot I’ve had technically. I prepped by having one camera dedicated to the drummer at 1/320 F4.0 ISO1000, and another for vocals that ended up at 1/200 F2.8 ISO1600, but nothing seemed to hit it square on. I just got enough information to identify the perps. …Oh, and the stage was about three feet above our heads, so I was holding the camera at full extension over my head trying to get a complete automobile. Really, the burning car was the essence this night.
It was fun, I enjoyed the insanity of it all. It made my evening. The venue was packed by screaming girls and their fathers…or was it screaming fathers and their girls?
