Opening for Kid Rock on the Born Free 2011 tour, Sheryl Crow took the stage just as the sun was setting, which made for a beautiful mix of warm daylight and stage lighting for the singer’s set.

Photographer’s Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3
  • Nikon D700

Lenses Used:

Pretty straight forward on this shoot – only the half of the photo pit stage left was accessible, due to a small thrust from the stage that split the pit into two sides.

A nice mix of spotlights, backlighting, and subtle sunlight shining through the amphitheater created a great looking treatment for Crow.

Overall, the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 was almost perfect for shooting the entire first three songs.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

D800_24_70_front-squareNikon D800:
I use two of the Nikon D800 for the majority of my work. High resolution, excellent high ISO in a robust but still compact body.
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.
