Capture the atmosphere
what ’s happening in the crowd can be just as interesting as what ’s happening on the stage
Often at music events – and at festivals in particular – there’s much more going on than just the music. It’s a chance to get some great people photos while everyone is in a happy, bouncy mood. Most people will be only too willing to pose for you, and even if they’re not, with a long lens you can take some great candids. Take a break from shooting the acts every now and then, and seek out some interesting characters in the crowd. Dancing revellers, fairground rides and fancy dress all added to the atmosphere at Bathfest 2015, shown here.
