Goo Goo Dolls & Matchbox Twenty – Concert Photography

Concert Photography

As per usual, I’ve let my personal photos get thrown on the back burner with editing to make sure that I am keeping up with my clients. Definitely something I need to work on fixing, so photos don’t get lost in the masses on my external hard drive! So today I decided I was going to tackle some of those photos and share with you some images from last August when the amazingly awesome Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox Twenty came to Blossom Music Center. I’ve been very fortunate enough to have the opportunity to hit up some concerts this past fall & winter and sit in the pit with my camera for a few songs with each act thanks to the Cleveland Leader. And let me tell you…concert photography is NOT the easiest thing in the world! There’s all kinds of obstacles – low lighting, crazy color temperatures that are constantly changing (with red tending to dominate and is HORRIBLE to deal with in post production), spot lights coming from all different directions with the beat of the music, quick movements from the band, and all kinds of technical equipment that could get in the way of the perfect shot. So it’s not like you can set the scene, adjust your camera settings and then get that perfect photo. No…you are just going on the fly trying to keep up and get a shot with great composition, lighting, coloring, and great emotion. But you know what? I love it! It’s been a great personal challenge of mine to learn more about how to get great concert photos (here’s a great article), and I think it’s also helped me improve in other areas of my photography. Always a plus! So here’s a few of my favorite images from this concert. I’ll try to catch up on some of the other concerts too in the near future here on the blog. 😉
