What are you looking for when shooting artist?
First up: I love this group and all the input I get from you guys. But I also feel kinda bad for my own pictures because the stuff in here as awesome. But lets get to what I wanna ask you. I got three pictures of artist at the same festival and I saw them side by side and asked my self:
What are you guys looking for when shooting musicians especially when it comes to lighting?
For explanation, I took all these pictures with the Nikon D7000 and all at 50mm.
The first picture was taken at about 6 pm that why some soft daylight is hitting his side wich I think looks kinda cool.
The second was the co-headliner and as I took this shot they had only haze and strobe light in the back so I went with this silhouette.
The third was taken from the side of the stage, but with constant light all over the stage so I was able to get him like that but with some shadows remaining.
also short note: excuse my englisch but im from Germany and we don't speak so much English here.
