Photographer's Notes:

After photographing the Aquabats, Hanson was up next. I'd photographed these guys back in 2008, but photographing them outdoors with natural light was a tremendous departure from Hanson's show at the Pageant. For one, all of the band members were nicely lit for this show, rather than just Taylor by spotlight as with my previous shoot.

Thanks to the abundant lighting, I had the luxury of stopping down one-stop with the Nikon 70-200m f/2.8, shooting at a quadruple-digit shutter speed, and shooting at the base ISO of the D3. For all the heat and work of outdoor festivals, there are certainly some perks in the technical approach.

While I also had the Nikon 24-70mm on the D700, the telephoto was really perfect for photographing Hanson.

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.
