Photographer's Notes:

As with many performers who are seated at a piano, Sara Bareilles was an interesting challenge in several regards. To begin with, the singer's close position adjacent to a large stationary object was a major consideration for this performance.

The lighting for this set was quite simple, with warm white light from the house setup shining constantly for most of the first two songs. Magenta accent lighting added a little pop from the back of the stage, mostly during the second song.

I used the Nikon D3 and Nikon D700 for this performance, utilizing the 70-200mm f/2.8 and 24-70mm f/2.8 for this set, using the telephoto for the majority of the set.

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.
