Les Claypool and company stormed the Pageant and rocked a sold-out house with huge inflatable astronauts, a psychedelic lighting treatment, and Claypool's signature, funky bass lines driving the performance.

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D700
  • Nikon D7000

Lenses Used:

Lighting. Ouch. There was barely a drop of pure white light on the band members in the first three songs for Primus, but there was plenty of all the other colors in the rainbow washing over the stage.

Still, for all the wild lighting treatment at work, this show was still a blast. Even with the tricky lighting and weird sight lines due to monitors, the band members didn't move much during the first three songs which made things manageable.

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.
