Kelly Rowland can out swinging – or kicking, as it were – on the F.A.M.E Tour 2011. While only the second out of four performances, Rowland received some gorgeously moody light, particularly at the very beginning of her set.

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3
  • Nikon D700

Lenses Used:

A huge amount of haze on the stage really made this treatment. Combined with good lighting, Kelly Rowland's set looked and photographed great. Even though Rowland performed at just the front of the stage – Chris Brown's set took up the entire back half of the stage and was blocked out by a curtain – the performance didn't feel small in any way.

For me, this is almost the perfect combination of light – nice background and accent effects with clear white light from the front.

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.

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.
