Episode 2 of Concert Photography Tips is here! This episode talks about the importance of capturing crowd participation and atmosphere of a gig.
In case you missed episode 1, we spoke about contrast and context when you’re telling a story. As the first episode of Concert Photography Tips, I asked for feedback on where you would like the series to go and what tips you would like it to cover to help you be the best music photographer you can be. Here’s a few comments on the Instagram post I put out:
Amazing to share. And nice to start a relaxed conversation rather than tense over ownership. Very big of you! – @a_girl_got_a_name
I’m excited to see where it goes from here! – @sticksnbricks666
This is sick! I enjoy Adam elmakias’s videos like this but dig how you’re getting more in depth. Keen to watch these! – @j0shcook
Learned new tips from your video. Thank you! You’re easy to understand and get your message across well. Great start! – @teaguricanephotography
The tips are really helping thank you – @spooky_sam_christmas
Words can’t explain how happy I was that the first episode was useful. Sometimes when you have an idea, it’s not always useful to those who it is intended for. The intention of the photography tips video series is to help beginner photographers get up and running in the music industry, so I was so happy to read that it helped!
You may have read in the previous post or video that I started this video series to help cut through the secretive nature of the photography industry. Nothing should be a secret and you should be able to rely on the information you are given. After all, your skill is what will get you ahead, and that is unique to you.
Episode 3 is in the pipeline and will drop in another fortnight. In the meantime I might see you in a photo pit!
