Thoughts on Filming Live Music Shows

Updated: Jun 22, 2020



I have been filming many musicians at live music venues, where you will have to overcome the challenges of extremely low light conditions, noisy background, and unpredictable and chaotic audiences' movements.

While live music shows as a gig can be challenging sometimes, it is one of the most accessible gigs for starters including myself as a videographer.

With a tight budget, one DSLR on your hands, and another on tripod maybe, or if you are lucky on your second camera operators' hands, this can be a place where you can experiment and practice your crafts as well.

I would like to share some thoughts and my experiences that made huge differences to my videos.


I think the information below can be useful for someone who is starting out their paths as a videographer or someone who is trying to help out their friends, family, or just favorite musicians.
