Pop punk veterans New Found Glory helped close down the Jolly Green Stage on the second day of The Bamboozle 2011. The band's set was characterized by blasting colored lights from the back and sides of the stage as amped up as the band's bouncing set.

Photographer's Notes:

Cameras Used:

  • Nikon D3
  • Nikon D700

Lenses Used:

New Found Glory's set at Bamboozle was pretty nuts. In the first three, singer Jordan Pundik jumped into the pit and climbed up on the barricade, stopping at no less than three different spots to sing along with fans.

Beyond that thrill of chasing Pundik around the pit and vying for a clean angle on him, one surprise about this show was that it had the most colorful treatment out of all the performance I shot at the Bamboozle. Lots of haze, blasting side and backlighting made exposure tricky to set, but also allowed for relatively high shutter speeds as well.

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-70-200-square

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-f28-lens-square

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.
