Shooting Notes:

While I went in with the 24-70mm f/2.8 mounted on the D3, it was the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 that really saw the majority of use for this set. The telephoto zoom excelled at half-length shots of Jazmine Sullivan, as well as for tighter framing.

Overall, the lighting for this set was great; abundant white light from the front thanks to spotlights, and a light but pleasant background treatment of blues and yellows.

I shot this performance fairly locked at ISO 1600, f/3.2, and 1/500.

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.
