Nine Inch Nails @ Worcester

I shot Nine Inch Nails at the 9 Nov show in Worcester, MA. I did final processing on a lot of them in B&W because during the three songs, there was an incredible amount of smoke and everything was whited out for most of the allotted time. I could barely see the two guys in the back (Alessandro Cortini and Josh Freese). I didn't get one decent shot of either of them. So the smoke gave me problems and then, the horror of all photographers, my second body with a wide-angle lens on it decided to not work the second I got into the pit. It worked backstage--I had tested it several times--and once out front it would not fire. THANK GOD it was my backup body, not my main one. We also were told to bring absolutely nothing from backstage that we couldn't carry on our person, so changing lenses was difficult as my bag is not a wearable one. I had to stuff one lens down my pants to have a place to put it. So anyway, because of the smoke and because the colors in the background were not overly awesome for me for most of those particular songs, I figured I'd convert some to B&W and go for drama that way rather than through color-pop.

Here is one B&W, which I thought was kind of a meh picture, but it seems to be very popular based on Flickr views and comments elsewhere. Probably because it's the one shot where Trent Reznor was looking right into the camera. A color shot is under the cut (warning, it's big), full set in progress including P&S shots from Manchester and Atlantic City is here.

Sorry I can never get these fucking cuts to work.  Am trying again, so sorry.
