Photographer’s Notes

I spent approximately 12 minutes in front of Septic Flesh but it felt more like 5. The lighting was exceedingly dark for most of the first three but for a few moments when the band was blasted by strong white backlighting.

I shot mainly with the 24-70mm on the D3 with an exposure that fell well below my comfort zone. Most of this set was shot at ISO 3200 at 1/60 and f/2.8.

  1. Not comfortable going up to ISO 6400 even on the D3, huh?

  2. Great shots Chris. The images convey the energy well.

  3. If nothing else you can tell your kids you photographed “Septic Flesh” without having to look at a dead body :)

    There’s pretty much hair in those ones! Really like them!

  5. That's pretty gross Rene. Pretty gross!

  6. Thanks for posting this, as I’m sure it will be useful to many people out there. The more you know and prepare yourself, the better off you’ll be.

  7. Good question Brandon. Actually the D3 is totally usable at ISO 6400 provided that the quality of the light isn’t totally awful. In this case the light was bad enough that I thought to avoid it.

  8. Thanks as always Craig!
