Good book for music fans who want to take good concert photos but not exactly what I was looking for..
on May 16, 2012
I think this book would be very fun and entertaining for people who love concerts and want to be able to take some good stage photos. I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would because it is not detailed enough regarding many low light situations and looks more scrap book like than this author's other books I have read. If you are getting this to learn how to take photos of people moving in low light situations as was I, I would get this author's other book on low light photography instead. This is put together more like a scrap book of the authors conquests (photos of rockers he always wanted to photograph) than a typical photography book and although it does have some good information about actual photography, it focuses on many other things as well, like how to get back stage and what to expect with the different passes, how you should behave and things like that. It has a unique set of sections called Pro Tips where the author asks professionals in the field specific questions and then gives their answers as in an interview. Some of these were very interesting.
