Capturing live music performance on pictures is though.
There are numerous obstacles such as rapid unpredictable movement, odd angles, perpetually changing lighting conditions, very limited time at hand and many many more.
But what makes concert photography so difficult is capturing the mood of the performance as well as the massive aspect that is connection that occurs somewhere between the artist and the crowd. It’s that magic that materializes itself hallway between the two.
