Touring The Angel 2005/2006

The band is currently on a world tour, to promote "Playing The Angel". "Touring The Angel" will take the band through North America and Europe, through April of 2006.

I only had a chance to use my small camera , non-Canon gear ( Sony 717) in regular seats on the floor in the 24th row, but it was a great show. If you have never seen Depeche Mode live, I strongly recommend them.

The P&S shutter lag, and camera shake got me a few times, but I think they turned out really well, under the circumstances.

I kept thinking to myself, I wish I had my 20D and 70-200 2.8IS right now :mad:

There are 65 photos from the pre show meet up at Big Buck Brewery and the show.

I hope you enjoy them, I know I do :)


Comments and Critqiues appreciated.

Great work Eric. Depeche Mode are almost the top of my "I really really wanna shoot these bands" list. I'm jealous that you've seen them live let alone got some great shots in difficult conditions.

Congratulations. I'd be proud of any or all of those photos.

Great shots, the compositions rock.......I reckon' with that amount of visual effects it would be easy to make it look wrong but your shots look well balanced.

I just got off the phone with my friend who is one of the most widely used Urban Life photographers in the Detroit area. He was contracted to shoot the Depeche Mode show last night for REAL DETROIT - the local weekly entertainmentpaper mag, but he only got to Photograph during the first two songs.


Only two songs, and the crowd was very mellow and also they didn't have many of the big lights and visuals going yet, as they built up throughout the night.

He used the first song to get close ups as he was in the pit in front of the stage, then moved back on the side to get some wider shots and then use his 70-200 for different angle close ups.

He looked at my photos, and said he was jealous of the lights and front angle I was able to have.


Interesting perspective

awesome shots... I would love to Shoot Depeche Mode.. I'm trying to go see them in Munich in Jan. but not sure if I"ll be able to. Also looks like David Gahan is doing a little better with the Heroin these days. He looked pretty rough on the "devotional" tour.

*Great* shots considering what you had to work with!
I'ld love to shoot them once, but I think I would get too frustrated if I only had my Rollei 35 and couldn't bring my 1D2. In my case it 'ld probabely mean: Either a press card, or buy the CD instead :p
Then again, these shots show: It's not what you've got, it's what you do with it...

Press card will get you in the pit...this is good for the tight shots, but I love shooting from out in the crowd. If you can avoid security then you can get some nice shots. I always stand by the sound board...talk to the engineer so the security think I'm with them...and fire away :)

I fear the camera bag might be a givaway ;)
While it's larger then a microphone, it's slightly smaller then a guitar case :D

You will be in the press section or general audience?

As for the EXIF of all these shots.

In the all thumbnails view of my gallery, hen click on the drop down box " Listing Type:" - Detail Listing ONE, and that will show you the EXIF data from each photo.


But for most part

I shot between f 2.2- 3.5 and Shutter Speeds 25-50, and ISO 100,

but most of that doesn't match the same on a Canon system

Eric, I never tried to photograph bands, probably because I wasn't into music, from the audience area with marginal equipment ... I think it would be near impossible. I think these are super.

Hi, couldnt see the shots, have they moved?

I love this band and recently shot Depeche mode on this recent tour, in London O2 Birmingham, Manchester, Paris and the Royal Albert Hall from the crowd using a G10. I normally shoot gigs with a 5D mark II but couldnt get contracted for these gigs (im still only shooting local stuff).

The shots gor better as I got more used to the G10 and gained more experience from the VERY enthusiastic crowd
