A full day after the end of Bamboozle, and I think I still have a festival “hangover.” With three days of live music, there was plenty to shoot. Some of the highlight acts of the weekend were A Day To Remember, Dashboard Confessional, Travie McCoy, New Found Glory, Bruno Mars, and a surprise guest appearance by Jack's Mannequin. And, let's not forget a pit shoot for Lil Wayne.

On that note, here's a quick preview from Bamboozle 2011 in beautiful East Rutherford, New Jersey.

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.
