Concert or Gig Photography is all about recreating the energy and vibe from the concert using photos. More often, the photographer is only given the first 3 songs (sometimes less) to capture as much emotion from the artist/performer/band as well as the audience before he or she gets booted out of the photo pit by security. Every single element in the concert comes into play as well: lights, artist performance, audience participation, the number of photographers jostling in the pit to nail that one shot and for outdoor venues, weather.
These is just a small collection of my favorite pictures captured at such gigs, where all the stars align and I feel I got the shot(s) I needed/wanted.
