Sporting a Joan Jett t-shirt and war paint, Be Your Own Pet‘s Jemina Pearl came out to dominate, stomping over the Pageant's stage in a raucous throw down of punk rock riot. In the frenetic, high-energy set, the Nashville-based four-piece delivered a racing 30 minute set that had fans trashing and shaking on the floor.
Jemina Pearl's erratic movements on stage made choosing a focal range an interesting proposition, but the 24-70mm generally proved quite good as an all-around lens during this set.
Exposure & Metering:
I shot between 1/50 and 1/80 at f/4 and ISO 1600 for this set. The slower shutter speeds mark a change from the flash work for Semi Precious Weapons, whose set was shot around 1/200 by contrast.
Overall, the more atmospheric lighting for BYOP required a little more ambient exposure, and introducing a little more motion blur for this set seemed appropriate.
