Got the chance to shoot and spend some time with Umphreys McGee on Thursday. Shooting these guys was quite a bit different than other bands I've shot, as we were able to keep shooting through the entire first set! Through a friend of mine and the person that was able to secure me a pass, I was granted access on stage during the first song of their second set to get shots of Kris and Andy (drummer and percussionist respectively).

I had taken somewhere over 800 photos with about 250 keepers out of them. The band has a tremendous lighting set up, and their red lighting patterns and blue lighting patterns wreak havoc on camera sensors. Entire set was shot with 5D Classic, between ISO1000 and 1600. Used a combination of an EF15mm and 24-70L the entire evening. These are my favorite 30 photos from the evening. Click the first image to jump to flickr.

Nice set. Jeff Warful is a sick lighting designer and while you have to dodge the reds and blues a bit, when you get lighting you can work with the results are amazing.

Number 2 is by far my favorite. (You should number these, fyi)

Last time I shot them was outdoors and the entire first set was basically in outdoor light. I didnt get to play with the lights until the very end of the set.

Number 2 is one of my favorites as well. I got lucky, my friend who got me the pass works for Pearl Drums and needed some new pictures of Kris for their website, so the band's management let me up on stage to fire away. Just had to stay off to the side or behind Kris.

I did run into a problem with a security guard who wouldn't let me side-stage during the set break, even though I had an all access pass. The drum tech needed to come grab me and tell her I was allowed back there.
