Tall Animals @ The Vic

We heard about this show just a few hours before Tall Animals hit the stage in support of Lindsey Stirling.  Surprisingly, it was a rare free night, so we lucked out and were able to make it.

Tall Animals played a DJ set this night to get the crowd going, so it was a bit different from their standard fare, but it’s always wonderful to see these guys!  Here are just a few of my favorites:

Shooting Notes

The hardest part of this shoot was that Tall Animals were so far back on the stage. Add in the tables with mounted laptops and it was hard to get a clear shot. Luckily, I had an all-access pass, so I was able to shoot from the stage a bit, which also allowed me to get some of the great crowd in the background. There were strong color washes, but plenty of light, so with careful exposure, I was happy to let the images retain the bright colors (which I felt fit the EDM vibe well!).

I shot the set with the 5D Mark III, and primarily the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS. The 24mm f/1.4 and 50mm f/1.2 also made some appearances.
