Warped Tour 2009: Portraits

Warped Tour Portraits:

13 bands, 10 bottles of water, 8 speedlights, one brother, and zero live shows later: Backstage portraits from Warped Tour 2009, featuring TAT, Escape the Fate, Forever The Sickest Kids, We the Kings, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, and more.

Despite soaring temperatures into the afternoon and an unrelenting schedule of portrait shoots throughout the day, Warped Tour 2009 was an absolute blast.

I attacked Warped Tour with Chris to knock out a ton of new portrait work for you guys. All in a day's work!

Sample Setup Shot:

You may ask, “Todd, can you please show me how the BrOwyoungs roll?” And to that I would answer, friend, this is how we roll:

Warped Tour Portraits:

In this shot are three Nikon SB-900s and three SB-600s. You can see the SB-900s in the two accents lights camera-right and camera-left, while the third SB-900 is fired into the softbox Chris is self-booming here. Three Nikon SB-600s are ganged up on the backlight stand just to the right of Chris.

End Notes:

I'll be posting a few more shots from the Warped Tour extravaganza, but in the meantime, a gigantic and thunderous thank you goes out to Bethany Watson, one of my favorite people in the entire world, for helping coordinate everything with Warped Tour. A huge thanks goes out to all the bands who took time out of their day to pose for a few minutes in front of the lens.

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.
