Do you miss the adrenaline that attending live concerts gave you? Or are you in search of how to make your next concert visit the most remarkable? 

The basic idea of concert photography is to combine the raging light, super excited crowd, and the musician into one great shot within ten minutes. Some may find this to be unreal but trust us, it is all worth it in the end.

Without any further ado, let us know how to pursue great concert photography! 




Before jumping onto pieces of equipment, we need to understand how we will go about the shoot location. At concerts, a lot of things are happening at one particular time. Due to the gazetted lights, your subjects will come off as more saturated than in reality. 

Camera: 

The camera that you will be using would be of a low-light setting. Finding a camera that has a higher ISO setting and low noise setting. On top of that, a more sensitive sensor would help you shift through high lighting exposure.

The burst mode setting will work out the best for you in a fast moving environment of concert photography.




Lenses:

Luxury lenses that have shallow depth and low focal points will be like a cakewalk for you. Also, keep in mind the distance of yours to your subject which will help you keep the backups ready.

Post-processing magic: concert photography:




NOTE is guys, your processes post the shoot should not be an excuse if you get bad pictures. Knowing what can be fixed during the post-photography process is all about knowing how skilled you are.

Red lights are often fixed during the sessions, and RAW images as well.

Expect the unexpected:




At last, you can never know what the artist has planned for your day. It all happens with experience. You will get to learn how to tackle different situations and scenes to be captured once you familiarise yourself with concert photography. 

Other than that you are good to go!

Let us know some of your favorite concert photography moments and share them with us. Until then, click away my friend!
