Here's a quick preview from KISS last night. Needless to say, this show was ridiculous – as, of course, one would expect from KISS. Pyro, facepaint and high heels! The guys all ham it up to a very entertaining degree. Hit the jump for another preview snap of the one and only Gene Simmons.

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

Lenses Used:

Full shooting notes coming up, but as you can see from the above notes, I shot this with just the Nikon D800. And yes, it meant switching between three lenses during the very fast two songs – but hey, you can't argue with some beautiful 36mp files from a big show like this.

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.
