Unearth @ Rockaway Concert 2012

Unearth are a metalcore band from the US that came to perform for the Rockaway concert held on the 20th of October 2012. Formed in 1998, the group has released five studio albums. Their fourth record, The March was released on October 14, 2008 meeting with high positive reception by many. Their fifth album, Darkness in Light, was released July 5, 2011. My first impression of their music was that its really heavy, like they have that quadruple bass thing going on. Their lead guitarist Buz McGrath was really nice to photograph as he had interesting expressions and also has good stage presence. Check out their website here, and their Facebook and Twitter.

The lighting generally was good at Rockaway, so my main concerns were just composing the shot and try focusing as well since my 18-55mm f/3.5-5 is not that fast of a lens. You really have to anticipate ahead of time what the band member is going to do for you to capture the moment. I noticed they normally do jumps and other crazy stuff when they are starting a new verse of the song or ending the song. Anticipate correctly and you will get the shot for sure!
