Teaser: Anthrax at Best Buy Theater

Scott Ian does these jumps every time Anthrax plays “Caught in a Mosh”.  I captured this the first time I shot Anthrax at Best Buy Theater a few months ago.  When they started playing it last night I moved to a different spot in the photo pit so I didn’t have the exact same framing as the last time I shot it.  I knew I risked missing it since the spot tonight was tougher to capture it.  What I like about it is the Anthrax logo framed in the shot as well as the shadow of Scott Ian on the wall.  The original one is below and the above one is last night’s capture of Scott Ian.  2 very different looks of the same type of moment.
