I have got to say that there are very few things that can compare to photographing bands from the pit or side of the stage. I love music and gigs and it’s amazing rush when you have the crowd behind you and the band seems like inches away through the lens.
It’s tough from a photographers view point as the gigs are usually in extremely low light, no flash allowed and only 3 songs to capture (alot of bands only just get going after the first 3 songs). However, these obstacles make me more determined to get great shots.
