    Thanks for sharing Matt. I am extremely interested in gear used lenses and lighting as these can be challenging. I will be attending my first fashion show in two weeks and am clueless. I think with events such as concerts and such, location, lighting, lenses and ISO are key.

    Matt Very Happy that your covering this. I have been shooting Music Concerts since 1999/2000. Loved the fact that you touched on the 1st 3 songs NO Flash shoot policy. Many main acts do not allow you to shoot outside of the Photographers pit. So that is something that should be mentioned. Also please touch on the Photographer's educate regarding sharing space in the pit as well as cross pathing. Many first time Concert shooters are not aware of this. Oh one more thing making friends with security guards is a big plus. They will literally watch your back when the crowd surfers decide to jump into the pit. :D
