Every concert photographer knows these words. It is usually only three songs you are allowed to shoot out of the pit. And these 10-15 minutes are very special like no other:
It is narrow and "crowded", always very loud, behind you there are the screaming fans, in front of you there is the artist, doing poses and gestures you have to capture within a second. No second chance. The light is extrem: too much or too little, frontal or cloloured... And you are in the middle of it all, trying to catch the momentum, the atmosphere of the particular event. You are trying to transfer sound and style of the artist into the image. It is all about getting this one particular picture which tells the complete story.
It is adrenalin pure.
