Concert Photography Gear
Here is a list of equipment that I use when I shoot a performance.
Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital Camera
Works great for low-light performances.
Less noise when shooting at high ISO.
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM Telephoto Zoom Lens
I love this lens! Can capture great photos at ISO 1000 in a low light performance.
A great lens to use to get shots of the drummer. Don’t forget the drummer! One rule that I have been told.
Great for tight shots of individual performers.
Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Autofocus Lens
On a full frame like the Canon 5D Mark II, the 85mm prime lens is great for tight shots of the performers.
Also a great lens for a portrait shot.
Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Autofocus Lens
Great lens for wide shots.
