With the second day of The Bamboozle, I couldn't think of a better way to start than with metalcore wunderkinds The Devil Wears Prada.

Photographer's Notes:

Despite some technical difficulties and not having toured just prior to this show, I thought TDWP delivered in true and characteristic form.

With abundant open shade and a hazy afternoon sky, photographing The Devil Wears Prada at The Bamboozle was a distinctly easier challenge than when I caught up with the guys opening for Killswitch Engage earlier this year. Shooting at the D3 and D700's base ISO with blazing shutter speeds certainly doesn't hurt.

I photographed The Devil Wears Prada primarily with the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 and the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8. While the band's lighting and movement don't generally allow for extensive telephoto photography, I thought that this daylight shoot was a great opportunity to use the 70-200mm for some tighter shots of singer Mike Hranica.

End Notes:

With their recently announced headlining tour, I'm looking forward to meeting up with The Devil Wears Prada again this summer. Great guys, and they always put on a killer show.

Looking for more TDWP? I caught up with The Devil Wears Prada when they were on tour with Killswitch Engage. Check out the full set of images from that portrait shoot here:

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.
