Tips for shooting music concert?
Jan 29, 2013

Hi, a coworker of mine asked if I would be willing to take pictures of his band. I’m a beginning photographer (my flickr page and one of those “buy gear first, watch youtube, shoot later” types.

This is the band and the location of the show …

This will be the first time I’ll shoot something like this so I was hoping for some tips and advice. I thinking the following, shoot manual, spot focus, ISO 1200, multi-frame Noise reduction? Not sure about lenses.

I’m hoping my current inventory will do the job. Of course, if there is an opportunity for new gear…….: )

Sony A77

Tamron 70-200; 2.8

Sony CZ 85; 1.4

Minolta 50; 1.7

Sony 16-50; 2.8
