Photos: Metric @ Lilith Fair

I couldn't think of a better way to start off Lilith Fair than with indie-rock darlings Metric. However, what really surprised me was the fantastic lighting treatment the band received, which turned out to be just a preview of the great production at Lilith.

Photographer's Notes:

Metric put on a killer show. And even better, they had the lighting to match, with nice blasts of back and side-lighting throughout the three song press were allotted to photograph.

At the center of attention was frontwoman Emily Haines, who was a fantastic subject – plenty of movement, great poses, and even some time at the very front of the stage.

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.

For most gigs, the 24-70mm is my go-to lens. Exceptional image quality at wide apertures and super-functional range.

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.

Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
