36 Crazyfists

36 Crazyfists @ the Pageant -- 2008.12.08

One from 36 Crazyfists, who opened up for In Flames. Because sometimes, all you need is one.

The Alaskan four-piece had some tremendous backlighting during their set (which should not be confused with strong backlighting) that made for some cool opportunities.

For the above shot, 14mm on the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 did the job. One of the many things I appreciate about this lens is that the ultra wide field of view can take relatively poor light and turn it into something much more impressive than it really is.

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.
