If you are into music and you really want to get a shot of your favorite band on the wall then here are some tips to get the best concert photos on canvas. Getting good photos at a concert can be pretty difficult. You are dealing with several factors that could potentially out of you control. But I want to give you a fighting chance to the the shot you want...something that you could print on canvas and be proud of it hanging on your wall. First you have to consider where you are sitting. If you are way up in the nose-bleeds then chances are you aren't going to get a great close up of the lead singer. But that doesn't mean you still can't get great wide shots of the entire arena. There are some iconic images of bands and the arenas they are playing in. Take sitting in the upper atmosphere as a challenge. You are getting an aerial view of the whole event. So use a wide angle lens to get the whole venue. Get the laser show from above. Use it to your advantage. If you have a railing in front of you you can use it to help steady your camera to get clearer sharper photos. If you do score stellar tickets for a sold out show or maybe it is a smaller scale concert and you wiggle your way up to the front you aren't promised amazing photos. You still have to deal with the crowd elbowing you, hands blocking your photo, and even stage lighting (or lack there of). What is the solution to these?
