This was my second time shooting the visual spectacle known as Ghost.  The first time being when I was on assignment for Rolling Stone at Orion festival last summer.  But this time, I got to shoot them indoors, with stage lighting, in their traditional black outfits and it made for a much more intense show and photos.  Colors were extremely saturated from blues to greens to magentas.

I shot this with 2 bodies with the Canon 24-70 on one and the 16-35 on the second.  Since the band travels with their own lighting person, you get the same light show no matter which show you go to, give or take some intensity.  I shot this around iso 2500 for the three songs.  You don’t get a ton of movement, especially from Papa Emeritus, although The Nameless Ghouls do move around a bit but they aren’t seen in much light.
