Went to my first concert last night, up at The Roxy to see Lindsey Stirling on her first tour. Wasn’t sure if they’d allow cameras, but I brought mine just in case. Even used my 50mm so it wouldn’t stand out too much. Turns out I didn’t need to worry, I saw plenty of other people there with even bigger cameras and telephoto lenses.
But I ended up sitting at a table towards the back, so even though I had a mostly unobstructed view, it wasn’t as close as I’d hoped (especially with a 50). Still, even at that distance I was able to grab some nice shots, although there was a lot of cropping involved later. The 1.4 aperture worked really well in capturing the lighting without getting too much blur.
And the concert itself was incredible, Lindsey Stirling is even more amazing live. I’m definitely looking forward to her next tour.
