Photos: Lil Wayne @ Chaifetz Arena

With respect to the buzz of Lil Wayne's release from Riker's Island today after an eight-month stint on lockup, I thought I'd post some of my favorite shots from Weezy's 2008 performance at the Chaifetz Arena.

This was an epic one-off performance in-the-round with a cruciform stage where photographers had full-set access. Easily one of the most fun events I've ever covered.

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.
