Photos: Hurt

As far as I'm concerned, any performance where the singer comes out to rock the barricade during the first three songs is a good one. Such was the case with singer J. Loren Wince and Hurt's mainstage performance at Pointfest 27, supporting Avenged Sevenfold.

Photographer’s Notes:

This show opened up the mainstage of Pointfest 27, and Hurt proved to be a nice warm up for the acts like Avenged Sevenfold who followed. Overall, plenty of action on stage (and off), with open shade from the amphitheater's shed mixing nicely with the little bit of stage lighting that graced the band.

Cameras Used:

Lenses Used:

For this show, the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 was the real hero. Due to the stage setup, the band wasn't all that close to the front of the stage, so the telephoto range of the f/2.8 zoom really came in handy for closing the gap.

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.
