Live Event Photography
Shooting live event photography is always fun. Here is a sample of a show I shot in Long Island at The Paramount. I was contacted by the lead singer of Bruce Springsteen tribute band; “The Rising” to shoot and video their whole show. The experience was incredible and the love event photography went seamlessly. The photos came out great and I got to hang with a bunch of cool dudes who were in the band and the guys at the venue as well.
I used a ton of different lenses for this shoot from a Canon EF 40mm to a Canon EF-S 55-250mm to a Canon EF 100mm to a wide angle Canon EF-S 17-85mm. The Canon 60D, which is my go-to camera, also shoots video in 1080p and comes stock with a very excellent microphone. I did NOT need a flash for the stage shots because the venue was so well lit and there was a lot of ambient light/smoke to play with.
The show itself was amazing and it was one of those nights that reminded me why I started my photography business. I edited the photos with a combination of Adobe Photoshop and with Lightroom. This was also the first night I used my Case Logic SLRC-205 SLR Camera Sling which I recommend for any and all photographers who like to be extremely tight when shooting. It has space enough for a DSLR, a few lenses, a spare shirt, your flash, wires, and more room for batteries, business cards, and extra memory cards. When shooting live event photography I cannot stress the importance of a bag like this enough because it gives you an effortless transition between lenses and gear.
I am available for live events in and around New York. My live event photography rates are negotiable and extremely reasonable. I also guarantee photos within 24 hours via Dropbox.
