Celebration Day, Night Two. After photographing the first night of this Led Zepplin tribute band's two-gig show, I knew I had to come back for more.
Concert Photographer's Notes:
This show was just as good as the first. But, however, not quite the same, which kept me on my toes and made shooting all the more fun.
Unlike the first night's performance, the lighting treatment seemed more atmospheric, with less light from the front and plenty of smoke to pick up the band's massive backlighting. While it might have made for more difficult shooting in some regards, I welcomed the change as an opportunity to have another take on Celebration Day's show.
I shot between ISO 1600 and 4000 during this concert, sticking to my trio of f/2.8 zooms. Just like the previous night, the band's setup farther back from the edge of the stage made the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 a great choice for much of the night's shooting.
