Photographer’s Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3
  • Nikon D700

Lenses Used:

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

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.

    Iso 200 geez, I can count on the fingers of my hand the shows I did at that Iso :) amazing set , gorgeous work ! 3 from top , really like the capture with the band name !

    ISO 200? For an indoors concert? Dear god, I hope you had a chance to personally thank the band / lighting designer! I could probably realistically shoot that with my slow-as-molasses kit lenses! *Does happy dance*
