Cheers.

Yes I did enjoy photographing them. We were left in the pit for the whole of Revamps set :D Only got the usual 3 songs for Epica though. Getting out was a challenge as the venue was packed out so around 1000 people crammed in there, so took a while to get from the pit to somewhere I could watch from (i.e the bar).

Got Symphony X, and The Primitives to photograph next week (at the same time that I should really be trying to sort the photos from Hammerfest) :D

A Canon f2.8 24-70 Also use a 70-200 for outdoor festivals or if shooting from the crowd or seating area at HF/HRH

I'm about to but a 50mm f1.4 which I hope won't be too restrictive. I've used my 70-200 at several small club shows and it works a treat. I don't take it to HRH as I'd worry about it too much!!!!

f1.4 is a nightmare. Can get some great shots with it when the light is crap, but the depth of field is so shallow that trying to get photos of bands that move around a lot is practically impossible

I'd use it primarily for close up shots of individual members with a nice sharp facial focus.......we'll see........I need the lens for weddings too.
