Photographing live music events allows me to be involved with people that just want to have fun! The genre presents a lot of challenges to a photographer that includes dealing with difficult lighting conditions and access for good composition. The perfect scenario with live music is to be able to capture the mood, the emotion, and the showmanship in a single capture. That'd be my benchmark if I can be sure of portraying an artist or band that displays all those things ... I've nailed it!
