Attracted to Gods: Behind the Scenes

Here's a quick behind-the-scenes video my friend Dave shot while assisting on last week's promo shoot with Minneapolis rockers Attracted to Gods.

You can see a little of the flash setup with the three Nikon SB-600s, Alien Bees B800, and Nikon SB-900, which acted as the trigger/commander. All three speedlights are pretty plainly visible, while the AB monolight is on the heavier stand you can see at about 0:05 into the clip.

In case you missed them, you can view the full set of images we made during the shoot here, along with a bit more about the flash setup.

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.
