Justin Bieber at the Barclays Center
Now I know what you are thinking - why was he shooting a Justin Bieber concert? Well I tell ya - I look at any shooting opportunity as a way to learn and experiment with my equipment. For this concert I was using the Fujifilm X-Pro1 + 35mm 1.4 and the Canon 5DIII mostly with the 70-200 2.8.
Clearly the biggest challenge was freezing the motion while not going crazy with a super high ISO and shooting tons of frames - since I just didn't feel like having a massive edit process. So I shot conservatively around ISO 1250 for most of the night and I really should have gone to ISO 2000 and used a faster shutter speed in many situations. But here's what I got and I am sure any 13 year old would love them!
I always love to see how many cell phones are up at concerts. I think at one point every person used theirs. Here's a quick shot showing them.
