How to Get Into Concerts as a Photographer

How to Get Into Concerts as a Photographer | Smartphones and Photography at Concerts | Scoop.it
While entertaining, attending concerts and sports events can get pretty expensive, especially if you want good seats for photographing. On top of the expense, many events won’t even allow you to bring a camera.

Brian Bailone's insight:

Perhaps professional photographers should be the only ones aloud to take photos during a concert. They are usually the ones the get published in newspapers and magazines. They get special permission to take those photos. This might be the only exception in my opinion.

For many music fans, being at a concert is more than listening to the band. They share photos and videos on social media. Others think it's time to put down the phone. (Time to ban smartphones at concerts?

Brian Bailone's insight:

Smartphones should be banned from concerts. You can take them inside but rules should be more strict about taking photos with them. Several artists have said they do not like when the crowd takes photos because it is distracting to them.

Prince Joins Increasing Number of Artists Banning Photography at their Concerts

Prince Joins Increasing Number of Artists Banning Photography at their Concerts | Smartphones and Photography at Concerts | Scoop.it
It's become a pattern with musicians lately. In an attempt to force people to actually experience the concert they're attending, many musicians are banning

Brian Bailone's insight:

I think more artists should start banning photography and smartphones at concerts. When you are focused on trying to get good picture, you are missing the live experience you get a concert.

 

Pros: Less spoilers online. People wont be able to see what the show is like until the experience it for themselves.

 

Cons: It will be very hard to force people to keep there smartphones away at a concert.

Def bad for music ind. Social sharing best to find new music. RT @bcarroll7 Apple tech could block photos & recording.

Brian Bailone's insight:

I think this could be incredibly beneficial. Transmittors that block the use of camera phones. This will definetly force people to stop using there phones during concerts. More concert venues should begin implementing these devices.

Brian Bailone's insight:

When I attend concerts, I try to keep my phone put away more and more now. It really is better to watch the show on the stage rather than through the screen on my phone. Why pay all that money for a concert ticket when you arent really going to enjoy it.

Kyleen Blunt's curator insight, October 9, 2014 12:51 AM

I find this article very interesting and I agree with it in many aspects. People are losing the experience of a live show, because instead of watching live, they are watching it through their phones. I have actually caught myself doing this very thing, and have since tried to limit my video recording and screen watching. I do it because I like to go back and rewatch the show and experience it again. I can understand both sides of this argument.
