Born Of Osiris by Zack Arias 






Glad to see Rock and Roll is still alive and well. I’m so tired of contracts, forms, handlers, and lack of access to balls out bands like Born of Osiris. I’m also happy to report that every single person from the band to the crew were some of the nicest and most genuine people I’ve worked with in an all access situation like this. They trusted me and set me loose without any restrictions. That’s how Rock and Roll is supposed to be. My night with Born of Osiris was a night to remember. 

Shot with a Fuji X-Pro1 and a 14mm lens with a handheld LumoPro LP180 flash. 

Shot for Revolver Magazine.

    Zack, great work as usual!

    Is the X-Pro1 really *that* good? I haven’t had opportunity to try it out quite yet but I am interested…

  • Zack said on August 25, 2014

    @Mark – The X-Pro1 is a good or as bad as you want it to be. :) Many think it can’t deal with fast moving subjects in low light… Well, maybe it isn’t a Nikon D4 but it does a fine damn job if you learn how to use it. :)

    Even though I have the new XT-1… I still love my X-Pro1.

    Nice work!

    I’ve been think of switching to Fuji completely for the last couple of months. I already have a x100s for my street photography and love it to dead. But i’m still in doubt if i should get rid of my Nikon set and really buy into the Fuji X-system because I can’t find anyone who has experience with them for serious concert photography.
    Do you have any ideas on that?

  • Zack said on August 25, 2014

    @HuubK – Rent one for your next show and see what you think about it. That’s the easiest thing to do.

    I have been thinking about picking up a mirrorless to keep with me daily. I don’t carry around my big lenses on a daily basis but often wish I had something better than the iPhone with me. If I could use it instead of the big gear for small club shows even better! XPro1 or XT1?
    I enjoy your work Zack!

    The XT-1 is a great camera. Better than the X-Pro in most areas but I still love the X-Pro. X-T is faster in AF and other operations though.

    Hi Zack, thanks for sharing these! I’m curious if you have a usual starting point for aperture and power setting when using a handheld flash for situations like these. Is it always the same, or are you really good at doing the math in your head?

  • Zack said on August 25, 2014

    @Dan – I find that I set an aperture and a small amount of flash and just work in that range of distance that feels comfortable. If I’m moving in close for something quickly then I make a quick aperture adjustment. It’s a little dance you learn to do that isn’t too hard.

    Looks like a fun night! What are you using to trigger the LumoPro? Wein or Pocket Wizard?

  • Zack said on August 25, 2014

    @Drew – Pocket Wizard.


  • Karen Mandall said on August 26, 2014

    Ok, I rented an X-pro 1 with a 23mm 1.4 lens for the next couple of weeks. I have a couple of small club show situations, a trip to Zion National Park and a couple of street portraits to give it a try!

    Good luck!

    Great images and full of emotion and energy. Just what music photos should be like!

    I love the X-pro 1, I have had a few hands on moments with it at my local photography store…. I am tempted to make the purchase soon. It’s all been because of you!
    Amazing stuff!
