6 Superb Ways To Take Photos At Live Music Concerts
Here are a few tips to help you take better photos at live music concerts. Nowadays, thanks to the progress of technology, digital cameras are integrated with almost all the gadgets. It’s easy to forget the latest performance of your favorite DJ, singer or band. For this reason, having photos will keep those great memories vivid in our minds.

So, You Wanna Learn How To Do It?

  • Take whatever you can get. Before digital, I would shoot a roll or half a roll of film but now with my digital camera, I might shoot 200 photos at a show. That really does increase your chances of getting an image you like.
  • Take pictures of people when they are not performing full tilt. Not every image should be a high drama shot. Photograph your subjects looking down or when an expression comes over their faces that tells you they’re thinking about something.
  • Make the light work for you. Find an angle on your subject rather than shooting it head-on-straight ahead flat light is the worst so you want to be off to the side rather than right in front of someone you’re photographing.

  • Shoot close more often rather than taking a picture of the whole room or the full stage. A close showed is not something your cellphone is going to do well because even if you zoom in you’re just cropping rather than getting the benefit of a real optical zoom lens. Getting up close with a decent lens will combat the problem.
  • Go down low or up high to shoot. A lot of people shoot from eye level all the time. one of the advantages of good digital cameras is the live view feature. I can hold the camera over my head to shoot like I’ve always done but now I can see what I’m shooting.
  • Avoid conventional shots. You can get worthwhile images with any camera as long as you think about what you’re doing and how you frame your subject. A lot of people place a subject’s face right in the middle of the frame instead of thinking of the whole frame as a palette. Photograph someone off to one side or make the lighting, the stage, or the background part of the photo instead of just sticking your camera right in front of your subject and firing away.
