One From Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne @ the Chaifetz Arena -- 2008.080.30

Here's one from Lil Wayne, AKA Weezy F. Baby, Birdman Jr., Mr. Carter, Stunna Jr., during his performance at the Chaifetz Arena.

Overall the lighting was pretty nice for this set, even though it was “just” two spotlights coming from either end of the arena. The performance was “in the round,” with a cruciform stage in the middle of the venue's floor.

Lil Wayne performed with support from the St. Lunatics, including Nelly and Murphy Lee, as well as a surprise guest appearance by none other than his Daddy, the #1 Stunna, Bryan “Baby” Williams, co-founder of Cash Money Records.

Stay tuned for all of these sets!

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.
