Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3
  • Nikon D700

Lenses Used:

Chevelle are always a tough but interesting shoot, due to the intensity the trio brings to the stage. They just rock out. This energy is both a thrill and a challenge to capture.

Aside from Bush, Chevelle received one of the more lush stage treatments of Pointfest, with plenty of haze to pick up the nice backlighting effects.

This set is actually a good example of just how far the right bit of haze will go in terms of making a treatment look alive. Without this haze to pick up the backlighting, the stage would have looked desolate.

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.

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.
