Aussie rockers The Temper Trap brought an epic, swirling sound to the Pageant along with a very atmospheric lighting treatment. While lighting was generally very low for this performance, the energy of the fans and the band members themselves made this a fun shoot.

Photographer's Notes:

Prime lenses saw a lot of use here, though I eventually was able to switch to f/2.8 zooms as the lighting opened up for a few songs during the Temper Trap's set.

Going into this set, I knew that I'd be disappointed in myself if I didn't nail at least one shot of singer Dougy Mandagi with his expressive hands raised.

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.
