June 4, 2009 – So, I’m writing a concert photography tutorial for a guest-blogger spot on the awesomeness that is the Photoshelter Blog. (If you don’t read it already, you should.) I’ll be covering the necessary how-to topics like gear and shooting technique but I’d love to know what else you would like covered in a concert photography guide. Would you like to know more about workflow or post processing? All suggestion are welcome!
