Photos: Megadeth, 2012 North American Tour
- Nikon D3
- Nikon D700
This show was lit extremely well. I think I was shooting at ISO 200 when clouds of heavy metal heaven opened up and that empyrean light shown down on Dave. The only real catch for this show was that the band hung back from the front of the stage, especially Dave, who seemed setup a good 2 meters back from the lip of the stage. Still, a thrill of a shoot.
My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography
I use two Nikon D750 for my live music photography. Amazing high ISO performance in a compact body with tons of pro features.
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.
