Photographer's Notes:

I'd photographed Rilo Kiley a few years ago, so I was eager to see Jenny Lewis rock the stage in her solo effort this time around.

This was a pretty straight-forward show, with fairly steady lighting. While Jenny Lewis and band received more marginal front-lighting, there was an abundant amount of white backlighting, which created some nice accents.

I used the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 and Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 for this concert. Overall, I favored the telephoto for the most part; the 70-200mm was perfect for isolating shots of Lewis.

This gig was first three from a narrow photo pit at the front of the stage.

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.
