Challenges & Pain Points

And finally I personally almost never convert to black and white, simply 'cause of an aesthetic personal choice but a very real solution to dealing with red lighting is to shoot in color and then simply convert to black and white in post. It's going to give you more flexibility, you can kind of adjust color tint, white balance, and the individual color channels a little more and, while the image in color might not look natural, in black and white you can preserve a natural tonality and you're going to have an image that you can salvage and deliver to a client and still come away with something even though the actual scene was fairly unworkable.

I highly reccomend this class for any one who would like to get started or dip their toes in the concert photography scene. This class has many useful tips and trick for any level of photographer, not just beginners. I have been in the music scene for over 10 years and I was able to gather so much information in every chapter. Watching this video boosted up my confidence as a photographer because it validated that I am already succeeding in my concert career. Thank you for this amazing stream. It sparked my creative soul once again.

Wow, this was awesome! I have been a concert photographer for almost 3 years now and I still learned some great tips! I loved that he covered different ideas for promo shots which is one of my weaknesses. Any beginner should definitely check out this course! It is straight and to the point with all of the most important steps.

This is a really great course! I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in this type of photography. It is presented in an easy to understand way. Todd gives clear and informative tips and shows how to set up lights, poses etc! I found it very helpful, and will definitely put what i've learned to work. Thanks, Mark
