Led Zepplin Tribute – Celebration Day

Celebration Day, Night Two. After photographing the first night of this Led Zepplin tribute band's two-gig show, I knew I had to come back for more.

Concert Photographer's Notes:

This show was just as good as the first. But, however, not quite the same, which kept me on my toes and made shooting all the more fun.

Unlike the first night's performance, the lighting treatment seemed more atmospheric, with less light from the front and plenty of smoke to pick up the band's massive backlighting. While it might have made for more difficult shooting in some regards, I welcomed the change as an opportunity to have another take on Celebration Day's show.

I shot between ISO 1600 and 4000 during this concert, sticking to my trio of f/2.8 zooms. Just like the previous night, the band's setup farther back from the edge of the stage made the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 a great choice for much of the night's shooting.

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.
