Black Crowes

Black Crowes: Concert Photos

Bluesy rock ‘n rollers The Black Crowes laid down a big set for their sold out show at the Pageant. With two songs and out, I was happy that the band started off with some lengthier jams and ISO 1600-friendly lighting for the f/2.8 zooms.

Photographer's Notes:

The Black Crowes' set was a pretty straight forward affair, and while the lighting started out pretty thin, the tour's lighting director kicked things up a notch soon into the first song for a haze-filled treatment with a tasteful mix of backlighting.

The band was set up relatively far back, so I shot this performance with the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 and Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8.

The ground rules for this show were two songs, no flash.

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.
