How to take great pictures in concerts

When we are at a live show or concert, we sometimes attempt to take pictures of the special event. Unfortunately, when the lights dim, or the sun sets, pictures tend to get blurry. I encountered this problem many times and I guess many others have also. Here is a great little tip I found about how to take great pictures in concerts.

The simple solution is to bring a simple point-and-shoot camera with image stabilization and a high maximum ISO (light sensitivity). At the times of reduced lighting, bump up the ISO to the maximum setting and select the right moment for the picture. Of course this works for dark places in general.

This is a simple version, for a more complete and complex guide to concert photography check this out. If you have other tips for such encounters, please let us know.

    Hey Neece, great to see you again. I am happy you like the tip. I have been into photography for the last couple of years too, promise to put up other cool photography tips I find.

    I find the tip to be very useful. If possible bring a monopod as well to stabilize your shots, but since you really need to take them with a quick shutter speed I guess that won’t help overly much.
    I’ve been into photography for several years and have always steered clear of dark conditions unless I could have a monopod or tripod. But this is very helpful info. Thanks for sharing it!
