After Ogre You Asshole warmed up the room, Wolf Parade laid into a fierce set at the Pageant, backed by a huge volume of haze and moody, mixed lighting. Needless to say, I went in with fast primes blazing.
Just like the opening performance by Ogre You Asshole, Wolf Parade's show had a relatively dim treatment with plenty of haze for atmosphere. And again, this show was mostly a f/1.4, ISO 3200 affair. Overall, not a show that I would have enjoyed shooting as a music photographer with just f/2.8 zooms (though they were in the bag, too).
- Nikon D3
- Nikon D700
For this show, the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 and Nikon 85mm f/1.4 were my two most-used lenses, as their speed and focal length was very nice for the angles and framing I wanted. If I could have only one prime for this show, it might have been the little 50mm f/1.4, as the field of view was wide enough to be really useful while still being tight enough for more careful compositions.
