Concert Photography

Let me tell you...concert photography is HARD with no flash and especially difficult when you're getting used to a new lens! But when you finally get it right, the hard work is more than worth it! I would probably get more usable shots if I used a flash but they wouldn't be nearly as dramatic. With flash, you just lose so much of the vibe, not to mention annoy everyone around you.

Here are a couple of great articles on concert photography:

Concert Photography Masterclass by Daniel Boud

Secrets of Killer Concert Photos Revealed by Jamie Howard

Wish I had reread them before Craig's recent concerts. It would have saved me a LOT of testing different apertures, ISO etc.
