October 28, 2008 – Performing at the Pageant in St. Louis, Sara Bareilles delivered her sparkling brand of piano pop to a legion of adoring fans.
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.
