One from Tyga

Tyga @ Pop's -- 2008.10.17

Just one shot for today, from Tyga's performance in support of Metro Station. I set up one SB-600 speedlight camera left on a speaker stack and triggered it with the Nikon SB-900.

Luckily, I've had the opportunity to use flash more and more, and Tyga's set was an interesting chance to experiment. The show featured heavy amounts of smoke, which generally worked pretty well with the single flash without washing out too badly.

It's been a busy week, with sets coming up from Metro Station, Forever The Sickest Kids, Cobra Starship, Panic at the Disco, Dashboard Confessional, and more. Stay tuned!

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.
