Cage the Elephant – if you haven't seen these guys live, do yourself a favor and check them out. I came away really impressed by the energy of the band, especially from singer Matthew Shultz and his frantic movements over the stage.
This show was nuts. Between the dim and spastic lighting to singer Matthew Shultz's own kinetic energy, everything in this show was a moving target. Want a challenge? Photograph Cage the Elephant.
For lenses, I mainly shot with the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 and the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8, though I even pulled out the primes on occasion when the light really dropped.
Due to the circumstances, for a show like this, I find that everything is relative. Image sharpness, motion blur, lighting, and preferences for grain/noise are no longer static constraints.
