NOFX @ Irving Plaza, NYC – 10.8.11
October 14, 2011 | Concert Photography
NOFX’s second night in New York City was sold out just like the Friday Night show. The band always put on an entertaining show, even more so when they headline and aren’t on the Vans Warped Tour. Although, I still like their sets then but they are less talky when they headline. You can read my full review over at ReadJunk.com.
Every time I shoot NOFX in a club, they have GREAT lighting. Bright white front lighting and colorful back lighting. Their sound designer clearly knows what they are doing. It certainly makes my job of covering their set a lot easier. I don’t have to worry too much about out of focus/soft focus shots or bluriness because the lighting stinks. Between the songs and the talking in between sets, photographers had ample time to shoot the band. Just like Anti-Flag’s set, I missed the jump shots for the most. I got one of Melvin but was too close in when it happened. For this set, I just used the 24-70mm f2.8 lens, and then snapped a few with the 70-200mm f2.8 when I had a clear shot from the side of the crowd.
