Preview: Girl Talk @ The Pageant

Here's a quick preview from Girl Talk's dance party at the Pageant last night. Not that this should come as a surprise to anyone familiar with the live shows of Gregg Gillis, but this gig was nuts.

There was calamity on the dance floor to be certain, but what's more, the shooting conditions of this show had me using my Nikon D3 and 14-24mm f/2.8 on a monopod and set on a timer just to get a shot of Gillis.

I'll explain the shooting situation in greater detail in the full post, but let's just say a little monopod saved the day for this assignment.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon D750:
I use two Nikon D750 for my live music photography. Amazing high ISO performance in a compact body with tons of pro features.
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.
