It's been a while since I've shot concert photos, but when I found myself at a Lila Rose show with a camera kit in tow I jumped at the chance to do some shooting. The last time I'd photographed live music I didn't have the kit to really make it anything quality without some serious compromises. This time I had a great setup and no pressure to submit anything to anyone. I used to fret about every little thing and looking back it was a real impediment to my photography. This time everything fell into place and the results were so much better than I've gotten with press passes and deadlines.
I'd also encourage people to check out Lila Rose. She's an excellent performer making awesome music.
