Creature With The Atom Brain

I love when weird stuff like this happens.

Belgian rockers Creature With The Atom Brain opened up for Alice In Chains in a heavy, dramatically lit set that hit just about all the primary colors in succession during the first three songs.

While on the one hand I love the pressure of photographing big, rock star bands, one thing that I love about photographing opening bands is the sense of freedom that comes with covering their sets.

Photographer's Notes:

This set was a lot of fun to photograph, even if the use of color washes seemed a little repetitive. If anything, the consistency of the lighting treatment meant that I felt a little more free to take more time with compositions or experiments that I wouldn't normally have the luxury of doing.

When there was a splash of white light, it was a challenge just catching it, as the duration was very quick and the exposure was several stops hotter than the mono-color washes.

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.
