42nd Street Photo: Music Photography Tips

One venue that is somewhat difficult to photograph but is a blast to shoot is music events. Concerts big and small are high energy, and fun. Here are some tips for photographing music events no matter where you are in the crowd:

  • Use the RAW setting. The image quality will be at its best when shooting in RAW. The flexibility is also unlike any other setting on a camera.
  • Turn up the ISO! You will definitely get more noise in the photo when putting the ISO high. The noise will not even matter with the other factors about the photo.
  • Use the manual mode as often as possible. You can control the exposure and other things in your camera.
  • Auto white balance is great for some and not others. Usually the automatic setting for the WB is accurate.

These tips are guaranteed to help you see options that may or may not work well for you. You will go into a music venue ready to capture the best moments of the night.
