After performances by Apocalyptica, Shinedown, Bullet For My Valentine, and Puddle of Mudd, South Africa's Seether closed down the main stage of Pointfest with a heavy dose of rock.
The band's set drew heavily from their 2007 release, Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces, including their Billboard-topping hit, “Fake It.”
After a full day of interesting shoots, from backstage portraits to the mainstage performances, Seether's set was the final challenge of the night.
The most prominent and difficult obstacle was the stage set up, which included large monitors along the edge of the stage and mic stands relatively far back, which created a fair distance between the photo pit and the performers.
I would have killed for some catchflash during this set.
Overall, lighting consisted of deep washes and backlighting, with accents of red underlighting for singer Shaun Morgan. There was very little in the way of direct lighting on the performers, but the treatment did suit the band's sound and aesthetic for a solid show.
