Each photographer has their our own way of looking through the lens. I have seen great concert photographs taken by many photographers. In return I have learned from, or gained insight from them that improved or enhanced my photography. We learn from one another' s "visions." Photography is a visual art.

The-Musicbox.com wants to celebrate the visual art of concert photography. All concert photographers are welcomed! "Variety is the spice of life."

The-Musicbox.Com wants to be "The Concert Photography Portal" for all interested. No competition just recognition. Vincent (Vinnie) Lagana, April 3, 2014

Concerts Photographed since 1994 - 20 Year Anniversary

My concert photo experience began in 1994. My experiences started when the best media available for recording images was film. Therefore, many of these concerts were photographed using either slide or negative film, mostly Kodak and some Ilford and Fuji. My favorite negative film was Kodak MAX 800! My original negatives and slides were directly scanned from a professional digital film scanner (Polaroid and later Nikon Supercool Scan). I did not use a digital camera until 2005.

So, many of my concert photographs are "old school" in a sense. They were taken when one had to consider latitude of different film types in order to get the best exposures. "Speed, grain, contrast" of the film were all to be considered. Each venue and its personal lighting conditions required its "Own" special film. Concert photography taught me to expect the unexpected when it came to concert lighting. A variety and good number of films were necessary to pack in your camera bag. One had to consider what type of film and/or filter (now internal with digital cameras) to use under different circumstances. It also taught me that if you want to make great pictures you have to have the "great" camera. Kind of like in music where "that Ludwig Drum set" truely makes a difference. Photography is the same. You must invest money in expensive lenses, a back-up camera or two, professional flash(s), professional tripods, professional digital technologies, and so on. Lot's of money "hoping to get a break to that big gig in the sky." I wasn't one of those photographers with a lot of money. I now have only one camera that I take care of very well. At some points of my freelance career I owned medium formats and multiple 35mm. But the number one lesson I was taught by my experiences is that you have to invest first in the lenses and then the camera body.

Today concert photography is a little less "analog" using digital cameras that make amazing photos just by programming the camera to do so. Even focusing is done automatically. In addition, the camera needs no film, and is not limited to using only one ISO speed. ISO speed can be changed from frame to frame if so desired.

I began my career in photography, and concert photography using Manual settings with my cameras and have continued to do so. Some of my concert photography demonstrates the limitation inherited in film. In other concert photos one can see the beauty of film when used to its maxime potential. Furthermore, you will also see the steady progression of concert images from my novice stage to the experienced professional. For the trianed eye in concert photography, there are also "evolutions" of different photography lenses I have used over the years. For the novice concert photographer I cannot stress enough the importance of lenses, even more so than camera body! "Lesson number one: "Wax On, Wax Off." LENSES with a maximum aperature of f/2.8. Anything higher (e.g. f/3.5, f/4, f/5.6) than f/2.8 will lack the sharpness, absorbtion of light detail, and hinders, or slow down your shutter speeds.

All my concert photography is live photography. I address this redundancy due to the fact that many people have asked me if certain photos were ever done in a studio. The answer is no. All my concert photos were made during live performances. Concert photography is a passion for me. I hope that paassion is something you can enjoy, and adds something to the art form. Ciao, Peace, Vinnie.
