Just two images from Hurt's performance at Pointfest 29. I just shot a few frames during their set for my own pacing, but don't take this as an editorial comment on their show – Hurt puts on a great live show. Case in point? Singer J. Loren jumping onto the barricade in the second song to whip up the crowd.

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3
  • Nikon D700

Lenses Used:

Hurt always bring a huge amount of energy to the stage. I first saw them about a year ago at the same venue, Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, and came away impressed by their energetic performance. That's also when I was exposed to J. Loren's ability to dominate a barricade.

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.
