However, even the bits which don't apply to me were relatively interesting to read, so it's still worth four stars, but doesn't quite make it to a five.
There is thorough explanations about finding your exposure, focus modes, gear, focal lengths and getting the right moment, but this book is not just about the technical side there is also chapters dedicated to getting access to gig's with a camera, what you should or shouldn't sign, it covers shooting in badly lit bars right up to big shows and festivals. Alan has also included several sections from other well known concert photographers with their experiences and tips along with tips and opinons from several musician's on how they prefer to be photographed and what it takes to make a great image. I highly recommend this book and also recommend attending the Workshop and courses that Alan along with Scott Diussa teach at Photoshop World.
Enjoyed the read and the pics that go with it.
Good chatty style and split into small chunky sections.
