Preview: Tiësto @ The Pageant

 (Todd Owyoung)

I have to admit – the energy & vibe for Tiësto's show at the Pageant could go toe to toe with any arena rock show. Here's a preview from tonight's show.

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3

Lenses Used:

The head shot was made at f/2.8 and 1/160 at ISO 1600 with the Nikon D3 and Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8. While I came prepared with a monopod and wireless shutter release in preparation for a repeat of the Girl Talk conditions, this show was a breeze by comparison.

Stay tuned for the full image set and shooting notes!

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.
