April 15, 2009 – Headlining the AP Tour 2009, Atlanat's crunkcore kings Family Force 5 brought a raucous dose of crushing riffs, danceable beats, and charged chorus lines that had the pit heaving.
I'd missed Family Force 5 on Warped Tour last year, but now that I've shot them, I can confidently say that they're pretty much a concert photographer's dream. Awesome energy and just an all around great show.
If there's any show in recent memory that deserved the ultra-wide treatment, this gig was it. Lots of front-of-the-stage action from the FF5 crew.
I shot this performance with the Nikon D3 and switched between the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 and Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, with a strong emphasis on the former.
For lighting, in addition to the house lights employed for the band's set, I shot this with a Nikon SB-900 on-camera and an SB-600 fired wirelessly off-camera.
