Supporting Chris Brown on the F.A.M.E. Tour 2011, rapper Tyga came out with an extremely high energy set that kicked off the night properly. Even as the first of four performers, Tyga's set still brought a high level of production with haze and just the right touch of accent lighting to keep things interesting for the camera.

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3
  • Nikon D700

Lenses Used:

Tyga brought tons and tons of energy to his short set and it was a great way to kick off the show. Tyga's performance was also a good reminder to keep my shutter speeds as high as possible to freeze the motion on stage, which was an essential point later in the evening with the fast-moving dance routines of Kelly Rowland and Chris Brown.

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.
