Photos: Hatebreed @ Family Arena

 (Todd Owyoung)

I skipped Rains's performance, so it was Hatebreed that kicked off this show for me, warming up the stage and crowd for Five Finger Death Punch and All That Remains. Bathed in a sickly orange light punctuated with strobes, this set marked a nice warm up for me as well, and the fast pace of Hatebreed's set certainly kept me on my toes.

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3
  • Nikon D700

Lenses Used:

I was kind of shocked that I photographed most of this quick set with the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8. But a relatively low stage and the stage-front friendliness of the band the ultra-wide seem like a natural conclusion for this concert.

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.
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.
