Hard rockers Papa Roach attacked the stage following Sick Puppies to deliver a fiery performance for the packed out house of the Scottrade Center.
Papa Roach was great to photograph. With bright, white light on the band members, lots of activity on stage, and a big show from the back of the stage, there was a lot to like about this show.
All the band members at the front of the stage were generously lit by spot lights, so stage light for this show was not a problem. Keeping shutter speeds high was generally as easy as it was necessary, as the band was very active during the three songs I photographed.
For this performance, the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 and Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 were in heavy use. Due to the heavy movement by the band right at the front of the stage, the 70-200mm wasn't employed to any great degree.
Lead guitarist Jerry Horton in particular was a blast to shoot, with plenty hair whips and time rocking out at the edge of the stage.
