[Photography] Concert photo… Simply Red Farewell Tour

Taking concert photo is always a challenge. The stage environment and stage lighting have wide dynamic range from pitch black to extreme bright coming from thousand of watts spot light. Different with say capturing a sunset scene, stage environment also change quickly and dramatically, thus  you need to react quickly to capture the moment.

Also about logistic, for an amateur photographer as my self I do not have a stage pass, or a pers pass, where you can go close to a stage to capture the scene so I just have to maximize where I’m at at the concert. No way I’m bringing the big and heavy tele or zoom lens to a concert, enjoying the music is still the main reason for me to go to a music concert. But if I manage to get decent picture with the equipment that I carry from the location where I at, I’m happy🙂

  1. Any particular reason why you chose the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 over Canon 50mm f/1.4 or the L-series f/1.2? or is it just because the wider focal?

    1. For street photography 50mm is bit tight for crop camera (7D), actually I crave the Canon 24mm 1.4L but expensive.

  2. well done bro with the pictures shooting. you still managed good result on low iso level. is it the 7D advance tech or is it cos you used to hit the shutter in that style. btw, i like #1 pict. its sharp. BRAVO Gan!
