Higgs discusses the hurdles that music photographers will face
Few photography environments are as challenging as the live gig. Your job as a music photographer is to capture fastmoving and often unpredictable subjects, in less than perfect and constantly changing lighting conditions. this pushes both your expertise and gear to its limits. having equipment that you know can cope with this tricky environment and that you’re familiar with takes away a lot of the stress, while with experience, you’ll grow to learn the kind of shooting angles and settings that tend to work best for amazing images. As you stop worrying about the basics as much, you’ll be more alert to what’s happening around you and will develop an instinct for what’s about to happen next. As that guitarist starts to step up onto the drum kit, before long, you’ll be focused and ready for his leap into the air without even needing to stop to think about it.
