All Time Low

All Time Low: Concert Photos

Punk-poppers All Time Low rolled into the Pageant with a big, rollicking show that had the sold-out house thumping and underwear flying onto the stage.

Photographer's Notes:

Lighting for this show was pretty tough as things go, with a ton of backlighting and very little in the way of frontlighting. In fact, the back of the stage was peppered with programmable spots and crowd blinders that created a pretty solid wall of light when it caught the haze.

Timing aside, there was generally plenty of light to work with, so exposure wasn't too big of a challenge for this set.

For this show, I focused on Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat exclusively, a nearly automatic decision made by these two performers' wild antics on stage.

The front of the stage was lined with monitors and several ego risers, adding to the five-foot stage at the Pageant, so height was a challenge for this gig. As a small bit of recompense, the risers featured LEDs for a bit of uplighting through the grated platforms.

The ground rules for this show were the first three songs; flash was allowed.

End Notes:

Think I was joking about the underwear on stage?

Underwear for All Time Low

These undergarments were thrown on stage before All Time Low came out, and one of the roadies gathered them up and put them on Jack Barakat's mic stand a few minutes before the lights went down.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon Z 7:
I use two Nikon Z 7 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all mirrorless camera with amazing AF, great speed and fantastic resolution.


Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8S:
The 24-70mm is my go-to lens. The range is ideal for stage front photography and the image quality is superb.


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.
