Warrant

Robert Mason

Formed on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, California in the 80′s, Warrant continues to delight crowds with classic hits and contemporary works delivered with a newfound enthusiasm brought by frontman Robert Mason.

This great night of rock n’ roll was performed in a genuine old school concrete civic center in Rome, Georgia which packaged Warrant and Skid Row as headliners with support provided by Rome’s own Jesse Harte of Southgang fame.

Photography Notes

Tough shooting in the small makeshift pit of standard temporary barriers that were moved closer and closer to the stage throughout the set. Often times the best angles required getting underneath the crowd if you will which presented some great interaction opportunities between artist and audience. Photography duties fell to the Nikon D700′s paired with the Nikon 24-70 2.8 and 14-24 2.8. Exposures fell in a challenging range of 1/200 F2.8 ISO 5000 +/- 2 stops thanks to a sole follow-spot providing nice front to back contrast and occasional artist isolation from the ambient stage lighting.

    Great shots as always!

    Do you mind if I ask about your focus technique? I’m trying to get better at shooting my daughter’s dance recitals and am having trouble nailing focus and figured the lighting and movements between concert and dance photography are similar. I realize that the time and experience you’ve got play a large part in you being able to get sharp shots – but I also realize the technique is important. I’m assuming that you’re using single point focus and moving the point around for the composition you want. Are you using AF-C? Back button focus?
