Every once in a while, I’m asked to write, in addition to shooting for Concert Guide Live. They have a section called Tales from the Photo Pit where we do a review from the photographer’s point of view. I add comments about the lighting, the stage, best angles to shoot from and about the venue – in addition to stuff about the band.
You can check out the article I wrote about Wyatt Blair at the Wayfarer here. But I wanted to mention a few things that i don’t say in the article. First, I was asked to write only a few days before the show. It may seem weird but I’m scared to death of writing articles. This is a blog – and it’s about my photography so it’s different. Writing about concerts is just more difficult, at least for me. Maybe it just takes time, or maybe it’s just not my thing, but I was pretty nervous about it.
Then again, I don’t shy away from things that I fear. Like Miyamoto Musashi, the 17th century legendary samurai and author of A Book of Five Rings said – “Do what you fear most”.
It would be great if I could get some feedback on my article. Please don’t hesitate to give me some constructive criticism! I’m looking to improve, not for a pat on the back… although a pat on the back is still appreciated!
