Paper Route

Under alternating hot-and-cold lighting, indie rockers Paper Route brought a massive performance to the Pageant that was a great prelude to Paramore's headlining performance.

Live Music: Paper Route – Images

Photographer's Notes:

I came into Paper Route's set only having heard their name, but I came away after photographing their set impressed and entertained. These guys put on a great show that was a lot of fun to shoot.

In particular, singer J.T. Daly was a very dynamic subject. While the lighting was very dramatic and didn't feature much in the way of frontlighting, Daly was a great subject as far as live music photography goes, often at the front of the stage and engaging the crowd while rocking the mic.

The lively stage show was complimented by a nice array of lighting – lots of blue, red, and even a bit of white backlighting rounded out the majority of the schemes.

I shot Paper Route's set at ISO 1600 and f/2.8 with a range of shutter speeds between 1/125 to 1/320.

The 24-70mm is my go-to lens. The range is ideal for stage front photography and the image quality is superb.

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.
