Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Concert and Live Music Photography: Pro Tips from the Pit (Paperback)
I've taken a few gig photos in the past and received just enough positive feedback that I decided I wanted to know how to do it properly. I bought this book and was glad I did. The range of advice given is excellent, from how to shoot in small, badly lit venues, to large stadiums, through how to get into the photographers pit and all the way to guidance on how to post-process your photos. I read it cover to cover in a couple of days and plan to have a re-read soon. There are plenty of excellent photos to have a look at and each photo had an overview of the camera kit and settings used to learn from. The book is very well written but it wasn't until I saw one of his photos that looked familiar that I realised that I already owned another of his books (the Nikon D3100 Digital Field Guide) so I suppose that make me a fan :)
Update: I still find myself referring to this book on occassion ... in fact I did so this morning!
