Photographing at Special Events is another exciting aspect to travel photography. Indoor and outdoor performances require good concentration and a sound knowledge of equipment and etiquette. Flash photography is generally regarded as a no-no, as it spoils the ambience and blinds the artist.
Jimmy Barnes always attracts a big audience, and during March 2011 he performed in front of thousands at the North Melbourne Football Ground in Victoria as part of the Aussie Rock on Arden concert. Being a warmish day, the sweat was evident on Barnes and the crowd. A great day - a great outdoor performance.
I used my 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM lens at 200mm to photograph Jimmy Barnes. In low light, good equipment and a steady hand is required to capture sharp images as performers like Barnes are always moving on stage. ISO 1600, 1/250sec, f/2.8.
At the 2011 Australian Photographic Society National Digital Exhibition, this photograph received an acceptance award. A nice reward, and a bonus on top of what was an enjoyable concert.
