Taking photos at a concert seems like a hard thing to do, so that is why I've decided to try and help by giving you a small technical advice set.Either you have a phone, a compact camera or a high end dslr, one creative person can take really good photos at a concert. I usually have my compact camera with me for several reasons: the security stuff won't pick up on my small camera, it's lighter and easier to carry and hold in a single hand, people will tend to act naturally in front of such a... continue reading

The city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA) was greatly influenced by German and Polish cultures. While the demographics are changing, there is still a lingering tradition of polka music.There is a tavern in the city where everyone is welcome to come one night each week to play polka music or to just watch and listen. A number of old-timers show up and they crank away on their concertinas. I worked on a small photo-documentary project and spent a number of evenings photographing the people. By coincidence,... continue reading

It started harassing me more since I entered this field of entertainment where I do my job as a singer, composer and songwriter.... continue reading

Shooting a concert outdoor with plenty of light is relatively simple. Shooting a concert indoor, NOT in the press pit and surrounded by horde of dancers is not as easy. Things get more complicated if you are dancing while shooting, which put my Alpha's sensor stabilizer under exteme pressure.But how much fun. This was my first time and I went through a steep learning curve, not sure I could have pulled any shot in almost complete darkness and with the poor ISO performance of my entry level DSLR.... continue reading
