How to Take Great Photos at a Music Festival

While it’s important to leave your gadgets home when you go to a music festival, it’s also important for many people to savor those memories in the form of photos.

Here are some of the ways in which you can be sure of capturing all those great memories while not having to sacrifice enjoying the actual music.

HDR is a Quick Fix

When the time comes to shoot photos of the venue, go HDR to save time adjusting exposure and getting the perfect amount of light in your photos. Just set your camera to take three brackets of the same shot at different exposures, and merge them all later in an HDR processor. Visit www.aurorahdr.com to learn more.

Go Compact

Lugging around a heavy DSLR is not going to be an ideal way to take photos at a music festival. You’ll always be worried about something happening to your gear and won’t be able to enjoy anything. Instead, take along a capable compact camera that you can walk around with.

Notice the Little Things

Another advantage of having a small camera is that you’ll have it with you at all time. So start noticing the little things that make music festivals so great. Take pictures of the food stalls and the face painting camps. Take portraits of people who look interesting to you, and take photos of what’s happening other than the music too. These are the things that matter when you look back at your experiences.
