Music, concerts and photography have been part of my life for so long now, but I needed a couple of years to move from photographing flowers, buildings and streets to going to events and live concerts with my camera.
Look for emotions and special moments
Every night is different, every artist has his/her own magic, so one of the first lessons learnt when going to live events was to appreciate the story and the details that will make that story a memorable one.
Love the colors
I have to say a big thank you to Cornel Ilie and VUNK when I will have the chance to meet again. At my second VUNK concert, they had soooo funky colors, even a bit too funky for my beginner photographing skills. But later on, I started to love them and esteem those colors more and more each day.
After that VUNK show, everything seemed much easier, even the smoke during LESEB concert @ Hard Rock Cafe or during Omul cu Sobolani concert @ Fratelli or the low light during so many live performances.
Enjoy the show
There’s a golden rule in live entertainment – if the public is feeling good then the artist is happy and if the artist is doing a great show then the public is happy. When everybody is enjoying the event, it is time for precious memories and photographs 🙂
Just enjoy the ride (as Morcheeba used to sing) and you might return home with pretty pictures.
Somebody used to say “we are here to enjoy that we are here” and this is what I try to capture every time I am allowed to photograph a concert or a special event. And for sure, this past half year full of live music completely changed the way I photograph and appreciate photos.
