Opening for Flogging Molly's 2010 stop at The Pageant, the Architects played a tight set that was a fantastic way to start off the night.

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

Lenses Used:

This set was pretty dark, but the Architects' great performance shone through. Normally this would have been a primes shoot, but due to the high energy and movement, I favored the flexibility of f/2.8 primes and simply cranked up the ISO on my Nikon D3 and D700. ISO 3200 to ISO 6400+ did the trick.

 

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.
