Photos: Kandi @ The Fox

For me, the above lead image of Kandi is just one of those images that make a concert immediately fulfilling as a music  photographer. The right pose, the right lighting, and the skill, experience, and luck to capture it all.

I'm not saying I wouldn't have minded some beautiful haze and more backlighting, but Kandi worked all the resources opening for Fantasia at the Fabulous Fox.

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

Lenses Used:

This was a pretty basic shoot, as Kandi was primarily lit by spotlights with only very minimal accent lighting from behind. I'm very thankful that there was that touch of backlighting, though, as it provided a really nice bit of color to Kandi's hair in the lead photo and a few others in this set.

Stay tuned for the full sets from Fantasia and Eric Benét.

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.
