Preview: Die Antwoord @ The Pageant
Here’s a quick preview from last night’s gig with South Africa’s foremost ambassadors of zef culture, Die Antwoord, who rocked a nearly sold out crowd at the Pageant.
- Nikon D3
- Nikon D700
Whoa. Lighting for this show was relatively terrible, but the intensity of Die Antwoord’s Ninja and Yolandi Visser was just too fun to let the strage lighting be too much of an inconvenience. Full set and shooting notes coming soon, guys.
My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography
I use two of the Nikon D800 for the majority of my work. High resolution, excellent high ISO in a robust but still compact body.
Nikon 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 70-200mm 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 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.
