Alan Doyle @ B.B. King Blues & Grill, NYC – 1.11.13

January 14, 2013 | Concert Photography

Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea performed at B.B. Kings Blues Club & Grill on Friday. It was a fun show and glad I got the chance to see Alan perform his solo material with the full band.

I have a full review of the show over at

This was the first concert I got to shoot with my new camera, the Nikon D800. So in a way, this will be a review of that camera as well. I thought the camera held up pretty damn good. About the only thing I noticed was the slight lag in shooting at times when trying to snap a bunch of photos. I’ve already heard that so it wasn’t a surprise or really a concern of mine. I’m not the type of photographer to just hold the shutter down and hope for the best anyway. I shot the show around ISO 1600 and as you can see, not much in terms of grain. I’m looking forward to shooting with the camera more, especially in other settings.

This venue had decent lighting and everyone was sitting down, so I ended up walking around and chillin’ by the back with the 70-200mm f2.8. I was originally right up front at my table, but decided to move back because it was so tight up front and I wanted to move around. I shot on and off throughout the show, sometimes just enjoying the show with my wife and other times getting up to shoot again. I love shooting Alan Doyle and Great Big Sea shows because Alan is so expressive and animated when singing so it makes for some awesome photos.
