I share my love affair with photography with music and live musical performances. As an ex-musician, it would just be natural to want merge the art forms of music and photography. Living in a major metropolitan area I had access to a multitude of music venues. Summer music festivals are always a great opportunity to shoot great photos. Effectively capturing live musical performances requires a few simple tips to keep in mind. Knowing the lighting conditions will help you pick the most appropriate camera equipment to take the best pictures.
