Photos: In Flames @ The Pageant

Swedish metal mainstays In Flames brought their A-game to the Pageant in support for Lamb of God, as well as a fantastic lighting treatment to compliment the high energy set. Here’s the proof.

Photographer’s Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3
  • Nikon D700

Lenses Used:

While I have to say that I miss Anders Fridén’s dreads and all their hairwhipping glory, In Flames still puts on a fantastically photogenic performance that ‘s full of energy.

For this show, the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 was just about perfect. The Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 did a little accent work just to mix up the focal lengths for this set, but the monitors at the front of the stage prevented a too much ultra-wide action.

Lighting for this show was pretty short duration and a little dark save the blinders from the back, but nothing that ISO 3200 on the D3 and D700 couldn’t handle.

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.
