Playing to a sold-out house, Adam Young – AKA Owl City – rocked the Pageant in a high-energy, feel-good performance that had the young crowd bouncing in the pit.

Photographer's Notes:

As I tweeted before Owl City's set, this show had a scarily narrow photo pit, with both ends of the barricade pinched off toward the stage. As such, this meant I had to climb into the alley and had very little room to move. Being so close to the stage wasn't idea, but still, any photo pit is a good one, and it sure beat shooting from the crowd.

Lighting for Owl City was actually pretty nice, with a decent level of lighting to shoot pretty comfortably at ISO 3200.

I shot this set primarily with the Nikon D3, D700, Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, and Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8.

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.
