At the end of the show, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros frontman Alex Ebert eyed the barricade separating fans from the stage and asked the audience if they could climb a wall. As if thinking better of having hundreds of fans climbing onto the stage, Ebert eased himself down and sat down in the middle of the pit as he sung the final song of the night.

Photographer's Notes:

Primes, primes, primes. Well, at least two primes: the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 and Nikon 85mm f/1.4 rules for this set. The only time I broke out zooms were during the very last song to capture tight and wide shots of Alex Ebert in pit staging a his love in.

For most of this set, I shot wide open at ISO 3200 and around 1/100.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon D750:
I use two Nikon D750 for my live music photography. Amazing high ISO performance in a compact body with tons of pro features.
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.
