My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

D800_24_70_front-squareNikon D800:
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-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.

      Hey Dave, thanks for the kind words. That first shot was made with the ever-awesome Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8.

      Exposure on that shot is 1/60 at f/2.8 and ISO 3200 with the Nikon D3. Thanks for the comment.

      Hey Ian, thanks a lot for the kind words. Yes, nice to see Randy back on stage. I saw these guys last at Mayhem Fest, I was definitely looking to this show.
