Preview: Matt & Kim @ The Pageant
Matt and Kim. Always a fantastic show. These two are one of the few acts where they always, without fail, seem to be having more fun than the audience. It’s like they’re just thrilled to be playing for a two thousand of their best friends in the whole world. Here’s a quick preview of two images from last night’s party.
- Nikon D3
- Nikon D700
Full shooting notes coming up soon!
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.
