The Script

The Script: Concert Photos

Having heard that The Script had opened for the likes of Paul McCartney and U2, I was excited to see their set opening for David Cook. Needless to say, the group from Dublin did not disappoint in their performance, which had the crowd on their feet and winning more than a few new fans.

Photographer's Notes:

Spotlights for this show were tremendous – it's hard to imagine photographing a group as energetic as The Script with any less light.

Singer Daniel O'Donoghue was the natural subject, and between his time at a keyboard and sprinting around the stage, there was plenty to photograph.

One unique thing about The Script for this set was the placement of drummer Glen Power near the edge of the stage, which is similar to how ?uestlove was positioned for the Roots performance at the Fox last year. If more drummers were setup on the side of the stage, I think music photographer's everywhere would rejoice.

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.
