Photos: Never Shout Never @ The Pageant

 (Todd Owyoung)

The ever barefoot Christofer Drew and Never Shout Never rocked a full house at the Pageant, with seemingly everyone jammed into the general admission pit. At one point before Never Shout Never took the stage, I heard a girl pressed against the barricade exclaim, “My dinner is going to be squeezed out!”

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3
  • Nikon D700

Lenses Used:

This was a relatively dim show with only the house lights being used, but a huge amount of haze was a great touch that really helped out the look of this gig.

I ended up shooting almost exclusively with my f/1.4 primes in the 50mm and 85mm flavors, and was very thankful to have them in my bag. They mean the difference between shooting at ISO 1600 or ISO 6400 with my Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8.

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.
