Preview: Dillinger Escape Plan @ Terminal 5

While the set as a whole was over the top – which is saying a lot of Dillinger Escape Plan – one of the true highlights was seeing the band's original vocalist, Dimitri Minakakis, take the stage at the end of the set to close out the show.

Greg Puciato and the band are intense enough, but add in Dimitri into the mix and it was like a double-barreled shotgun of crushing metal. Hit the jump for another preview snap of one of my favorite shots of Ben Weinman.

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D700

Lenses Used:

Of course the lead shot was made at 14mm with the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8. The light you see at the left of the frame is actually catchflash from another photographer who was shooting off-camera with a speedlight.

For the second shot of Ben, that's at 20mm. Gotta love a good ultra-wide lens!

Stay tuned for the full set, coming up.

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.
