The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem festival kicked off on Saturday June 30, 2012. What a great day of photography and music. One of the best performances of the day was by Anthrax who killed it as the closing act on the Jagermeister Stage.
It was great to shoot Anthrax in the full shade of the stage overhang in the late afternoon. You can always count on Anthrax to bring it.
And I love the way the Anthrax logo reminds me of super heroes, especially when used as a backdrop… Coincidence? I think not. As for the shooting data, We hd 2 songs to capture the energy of the show and it wasn’t hard. The band kicked it off in high gear and just went up from there. I also finally managed to get Scott in the air just the way I wanted…. All in all, a great shoot.
The full gallery is below.. Enjoy!
Great shots as always Alan. One of my favorite bands- would be a dream to get to shoot them.
Wow, they have you cut down to 2 songs, huh? They start the crowd surfing and stage diving that soon, I guess…
Awesome shots Alan. I love the post processing on the shot of Scott in the air. I’ll be shooting Mayhem Fest tomorrow near Pittsburgh, Pa.
I hope I get the same shade as you on the Jäger Stage…
