Shooting artists from 'The Voice' in NYC

I was excited to make the trip to NY to shoot Nicole Nelson of Team Adam Levine on The Voice. Besides, Nicole being one of my favorites, it was the first time I was going to challenge my Nikon D600 in a dark club.

I missed shooting the artist because I had difficulty with the memory card. Seems basic but the camera kept informing me I only had 1 photo left. Reformatting wasn’t working. I kept recalling how at the last minute I decided to leave the manual in my car. As though the manuel was creating an intolerable weight in my bag. Luckily, as a back up, I had brought my point and shoot, the Nikon 8100. I used it to reformat the memory cards and I was ready to go.

I started with my 50mm f1.8 lens to shoot De’Borah. Often I’ve read for beginning concert photogs that can’t afford fast zooms to start off with the less expensive prime. I give a thumbs down to this theory. Although you may get decent exposures, you miss out on the close-ups. This is especially difficult in a general admission situation where you have to shoot around fans.

Next up, I went to my 35-70mm f3.3-4.5 for Suzanna Choffel. I knew my D600 could handle pushing the ISO higher. Unfortunately, this still wasn’t doing it for me. I like some close face shots. With tables up against the stage and the club crowded, I still couldn’t get close enough.

For the grand finale, I pulled out the 70-210 f4-5.6 for Dwight & Nicole. I was going to put the ISO to the test on the D600. Let there be grain! At least, I got some nice close-ups of Nicole.

I’ll follow up after I work some Lightroom magic.
