Rockin’ Photography: How to Shoot Great Concert Photos

It’s all about the D&B. (Dark and blurry.) If you’re a grad student in photography, D&B is your recipe for success. If you’re trying to shoot a concert, however, chances are D&B is just the best you can do.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Follow a few simple guidelines (“High ISO is your friend”, “Rapidly changing lights mean that your light meter is worthless–shoot in manual”) and your concert photos will sing. (Sorry!)

Our friend Haje points us to two guides on taking fantastic concert photographs, one geared toward small venues and one he wrote for larger venues.

(See the bottom of this post or our Flickr group for some fantastic concert photography.)
