Our gov't is shut down but let's get REAL and talk about shooting MUSIC CONCERTS. I'm sharing with you some tips I picked up along the way.

But, a little background...I started shooting music concerts about 3 years ago. It was just one of those things I happened to have fallen into. But over the course of time, it's become a great joy to do (with the exception of some time away - see my story 2 posts ago where I talk more about that). Now, what I've learned over time is that there is no right or wrong way to shoot. Here I will share some GENERAL tips. I've included 10 photos above ☝🏼as tip references of the #goodlifeeastcoasttour at @brooklynbowl , which I shot last week.

1. Shoot in MANUAL mode if you can.
2. Shoot in RAW so that way in post production you have more options to edit.
3. Go deep. By this, I mean get into the crowd and use your zoom lens to capture the energy of the room, the crowd and the band from a far away perspective.
4. Get on stage if you have access. Shoot around, behind, above, etc. to get those unique shots.
5. Try to get the shot "In Camera". This means, get the best shot you can in that moment so that in post production you spend little time tweaking images. Believe me, when you have hundreds or thousands of images to pour through and choose from this is a time saver and one of the best advice I've ever received.
6. Use the background light to frame some of your shots.
7. Just go shoot. Practice makes perfect. Over time you will understand the shots you want and you will be shooting less images, which will, again, save you time in post production.
8. Follow other photographers. They don't have to be those who only shoot concerts. Inspiration can be found ANYWHERE.
9. Know the band you are shooting. If you do have backstage access you can bond with them and possibly get some amazing images.
10. Play around with shooting in black and white, color, etc. You will find the same shot in different color will have completely different moods.
11. Post production - at the beginning, if you are new to shooting live music, you will find your work flow slow. However, as you get better at shooting your work flow will become faster.

I was first introduced to @realcolliebuddz 🎶 in 2007 from his album #colliebuddz, and my favorite song “come around” had me hooked ever since. ✊🏼

“There's nothing like the sweet sweet sensi, The first time me take a draw was in elementary” 💨🔥

What a pleasure to also get to see @jomersamarley, the son of legend @stephenmarley. Here he performs “Rock & Swing” 🔥🎶
