We’ll get down to the nitty gritty of what to expect when preparing to shoot a show or concert, some of the pitfalls that you'll want to avoid as well as the "must have" shots that you should always get. We will also cover etiquette and how to make sure you're courteous and unobtrusive with your craft.
This class will be open to no more than 25 students who will have exclusive early access to The Ballroom to learn from Casey & Matt, along with the opportunity to photograph the opening band during their private soundcheck and rehearsal. Fujifilm will provide FREE loaner equipment to students including camera bodies and fast prime lenses that are optimal for photographing in the low-light scenarios you'll find in a majority of Austin's venues. At 7:30 p.m., the venue will open to the public for a free show sponsored by Precision Camera and Fujifilm. You will be able to shoot with Fujifilm loaner equipment for the entire show.
We guarantee you'll walk away feeling confident and ready to capture the mood and soul of any show.
