While it started off with a little singer-songwriter action at the keyboard, Holly Miranda's set opening for Tegan & Sara ended in an all-out rocker of beautiful, amplified fuzz.
Holly Miranda's set didn't have me hooked at the start, but by the time the band was rocking out and making some beautiful, raucous noise for the finale of the set, I was sold.
Light was very low for Holly Miranda's set, so catching the full-out rock at the end was a nice little challenge that called for fast primes. Specifically, the 85mm f/1.4 and 50mm f/1.4 did wonderfully in this sort of low contrast and deep lighting.
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.
