Fleet Foxes

Fleet Foxes @ the Fox Theatre -- 2008.10.13

October 13, 2008 – Opening for Death Cab For Cutie, Fleet Foxes delivered an entrancing performance at the Fabulous Fox in what for many was the highlight of the evening.

In contrast to the heavily atmospheric stage treatment to follow, the lighting for Fleet Foxes was, as a whole, very low key, with a simple treatment from the high lights front of house.

Photographer's Notes:

Without changes in the lighting or much movement from the band, this set was very straight forward compared to the more frantic pace of shooting for Death Cab. No real surprises here.

High, contrasty lights lit the band in simple fashion, with all of the treatment coming from the front, save a few orange lamps in the background for accent lighting.

The 24-70mm and 70-200mm shared duties for this set, with around 50mm and above seeing the most use. While I used both the D3 and D700, this is one set where one body would have fared just fine, as there was plenty of time to change lenses and switch positions.

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.
