Prior to the Holy Hell tour, I didn’t think film would be able to manage the insane task of shooting a live concert. Fast movement and horrendously bright flashing lights in an otherwise pitch black room are not exactly the ideal circumstances for a slow and thoughtful process like film photography. However, after a few successful experimental shots on some Portra 400, I thought I’d try a roll of Portra 800.
During Architects’ Berlin show I ventured into the photo pit for their first two songs and shot a roll. These are some of my favourite shots. Considering I’d never shot a roll during a concert I was surprised to find more than a couple decent shots. My next test will be the Fuji Superia 1600 during the next part of Beartooth’s Disease Tour.
