The Assignment
Photograph Dillinger Escape Plan in concert in New York City.

The Execution
"The audience was rowdy, as expected. Bodies were flying everywhere and I had to keep one eye in my viewfinder and the other on the crowd. I used earplugs because working right in front of the stage for an extended period of time could do some serious damage to my ear drums. As it happened, I got an accidental kick to the face which gave me a pretty good bloody nose. "Near the end of the set, lead singer Greg Puciato pulled a Gene Simmons by breathing fire out over the crowd. He then stepped out into the audience, let someone hold up the rod with the open flame, and shot it out over their heads. I used a 16-35 mm lens, with the ISO set to 800 and exposed at 1/250 sec at f/2.8."
Post Production
"I only did simple toning and color correcting to this image."

The Output
"I used Aurora Natural paper to print this image because I prefer a more natural look,
especially for a photo filled with warm tones. Other surfaces handled the complex gradients within the image, but the slight texture of the matte paper got my attention as it adds to the natural feel of the print. The paper has a nice "depth" to it and gives the image a subtle third dimension."
