I mentioned recently that I am branching out into photography, and one of the things I’m getting into is concert photography. I recently had the opportunity to shoot my first show on behalf of Imprint Entertainment at the Tabernacle here in Atlanta.
There were 4 bands playing: Jeris Johnson; Hawthorne Heights; Wage War; and Falling in Reverse (headlining). Head over to the Imprint Entertainment site to see the full photo gallery along with my review here.
Concert photography is definitely one of the most challenging types of photography. It’s incredibly difficult to get the right shutter speed and exposure in an environment where the lights are constantly changing and the subjects are constantly moving.
You can do the research and get all the advice you can possibly gather, but until you’re thrown into the actual situation and learn in real time through trial and error, you can’t fully know what you’re getting yourself into. I think that’s the best way to learn, and this was a great learning experience for me.
I’ll be sharing some blog posts soon with my tips for shooting concert photos, as well as launching a Photography YouTube channel with lots of informational videos and tips and tricks. Look for that soon!
