The Bravery @ Projekt Revolution

The Bravery @ Projekt Revolution

Following the Street Drum Corps and Ashes Divide on the main stage, New York synth rockers The Bravery lit up the Projekt Revolution main stage with a driving set against the backdrop of epic white lights. Led by singer Sam Endicott, the group churned through tracks from their self-titled debut and their sophomore release, The Sun and the Moon, including “An Honest Mistake” and “Believe.”

Photographer's Notes:

This was a really interesting set to photograph due to the blinding amount of white light behind the band. Shooting into these lights nearly guaranteed a little flare, so for much of the first three songs I decided to go wide and embrace the lights.

Lighting was unwavering during the first three songs, with three main arrays of cool white light shining down on the stage.

Lead singer Sam Endicott was positioned fairly far back from the stage and didn't approach the front very much, though this standoffish position was made up by lead guitarist Michael Zakarin, who came to the front frequently.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon D850:
I use two Nikon D850 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all DSLR with amazing AF, fast response, and no shortage of resolution.
nikon-24-70mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 24-70mm f/2.8:
For most gigs, the 24-70mm is my go-to lens. Exceptional image quality at wide apertures and super-functional range.
Nikon-70-200-squareNikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.
nikon-14-24mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
