Photos: Vampire Weekend & Beach House

Indie rock darlings Vampire Weekend brought their sunny indie pop to the big hall of the Chaifetz Arena with support from Beach House to cap off the first weekend of Rocktober 2010.

Photographer's Notes:

Nothing too crazy, and nothing too unexpected for this show. For the main course of Vampire Weekend, the band received a mix of blue, yellow, and red washes, punctuated flashes of white light from the back of the stage.

Cameras Used:

Lenses Used:

For this set, I switched back and forth between the workhorse lenses of the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 and the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8, which together provided a great range for this show.

None of the band members came very close to the front of the stage, so the range of these lenses was just about perfect – with all but a few wider shots, I could have pretty easily shot this with only the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8.

Exposure for this set hovered around ISO 1600 at f/2.8 and 1/160 or so.
