Portraits: Toryn Green

Portaits of singer Toryn Green

On tour with Apocalyptica, I caught up with singer Toryn Green for a quick shoot just before he took the stage with the Finish metal group. Lighting setup after the jump.

Photographer's Notes:

This image was shot at 24mm and f/4 with the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 at the D3's base ISO 200 and 1/100.


This shot was lit by two Nikon SB-600 speedlights fired into two 45″ reflective umbrellas, positioned on either side of Green for a nice soft cross-lighting effect.

Cross-lighting is a simple and effective way to light, and it can create dynamic effects on the subject.

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.
