Concert Photography

Published by at 7:17 am under Learning

Are you a photographer?

Are you a regular on the concert tours?

Then you need to get the book All Access: Your Backstage Pass to Concert Photography, by Alan Hess. Advice, inspiration, and insight for taking remarkable concert photos.

Concert photography poses a unique set of challenges to photographers, including night or low-light (isn’t this true!!), inconsistent stage lighting, a moving subject matter, limitations on vantage point, complex exposure situations, and no chance for re-takes. Compounded with those hurdles is a lack of resources on this subject, until now. All Access: Your Backstage Pass to Concert Photography fills this gap and provides you with all the information you need to know, from choosing the right gear and camera settings, to negotiating rights to publish or share photos, as well as how to best edit your photos in post-production.

Here are some quick tips from Alan.

1. Learn how to shoot in manual mode.

2. Use the right metering mode.

3. Focus carefully.

4. Timing is everything.

5. Shoot in bursts.

As always, visit Amazon for more info on the book (it is one of those ones that gives you sneak peaks inside) and some of the best prices.
