Taking pictures of your favorite band in action can be quite a task. Low lighting and fast moving musicians require the right camera tools to be capture the event on film.
Things You'll Need
- Several rolls of high speed film
- A bright flash
First off you will need to purchase about 3 rolls of high speed film from a retailer that sells professional grade photographic products. Your best choice will be rolls of film that have an ISO rating of 1600.
Next, you will need a sufficient flash on your camera to compensate for the low lighting of the music venue.
During the concert try to position yourself as close to the subject as possible without getting the flash of your camera too close to the subject's face.
If you are so lucky as to be on the stage or side stage, try bending down and resting on your knee. This will keep yourself out of the subject's way and create a more dynamic angle for your picture.
Tips & Warnings
- When a moment arises take more than one shot of the moment, you bought 3 whole rolls of film for a reason. It may take as many as 5 or 6 shots to get the one that will come out as you envisioned it.
- Concert goers are untrustworthy and unruly more often than not. Always be aware of the status of your equipment, it is not worth dropping your camera or having items stolen out of your bag.
