Nearly 20-years after her hit success with 1993's Fumbling Toward Ecstacy, Sarah McLaughlin closed out Lilith Fair 2010 with a graceful touch, including a duet with Emmylou Harris and the festival's ubiquitously lovely light.

Photographer's Notes:

Following acts like Mary J. Blige and Metric, Sarah McLaughlin put on a great shot, and it was an easy, relaxing way to close out Lilith Fair 2010 after a day of great acts and fantastic lighting.

Cameras Used:

Lenses Used:

I shot the majority of McLaughlin's set with the new Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8, which did a great job handling some of the tricky contrasts of the third song, when bright backlights came up. The Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 was key for wider shots, but the monitors and music stands surrounding McLaughlin blocked a bit too much to employ the lens too much while the singer was at the mic-stand.

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.
