This picture is so Vibrant! How did you do it?! Would love to get some advice, I have a lot of pictures from concerts, but I don't know how to make them pop more. I'm extremely jealous. And despite what other say, Andy is a great guy, they all are. I've had the pleasure of meeting them twice last year. They were nothing but nice.

Nice to hear someone has had a pleasant experience meeting with him. :) I think a lot of the bad rep that artists get is just formed out of jealousy or some such... I have never had an unpleasant experience meeting any musician, fortunately!

As far as concert photos... what kind of camera do you use? I run a publication where I cover local shows around the area, so I'm always credentialed and can bring my gigantic DSLR in. I also use lenses with an f2.8 aperture to let the most natural light in as possible. I never use a flash... If you have the ability to use manual settings in your camera, try to set the aperture as low as it will go and keep a shutter speed of 1/80 or higher (and 1/80 is really only passable when the artists isn't moving around much). I do a small amount of post processing in photoshop/lightroom for some touch up and noise reduction... so those may help as well.

Sorry I took so long to reply. I let myself get distracted :( lol. And I had a great experience meeting not only him, but the rest of BVB as well. I hope I get to meet them again in the future.

I acquired a new camera last November its a Nikon Coolpix P520. I just started taking pictures of concerts last year and am slowly making a name for myself within the Seattle area. What is the aperture? I have messed around with the ISO to try and allow more light, but that still doesn't always work. Flash doesn't work when I have it on shutter priority, but I found that if I have it on normal picture, the flash can still take a milisecond type picture. But it takes away the stage lighting. Without the flash then there is A LOT of noise. At least with the concerts that I've been too, they tend to rely heavily on strobe lights and other things rather then normal stage light. And I do have Lightroom, I use it a lot when I am going through the pictures. I love the clarity feature on Lightroom

I went to see these guys in Atlanta a few weeks ago, and at Warped Tour a few weeks before that. Both were awesome as all hell.

Agreed - I hadn't listened to much Black Veil Brides prior to this show, as I've heard so many negative things about them. I'm not fully sure where their bad rep comes from, but I left a fan and would love to see/shoot them again.

*he chuckles* The negative things you've heard about are just from retarded people who judge them based on their non-conformity to the societal norm, and their music. I choose to ignore it, because it's just a bunch of nonsensical bullshit, mostly, and the idiots have no idea what they're talking about.

Thank you so much, as always!! I swear his eyes were glowing blue...
When they came on, their tour manager only let us shoot from side stage. Would love to shoot them from the pit sometime though! So many good moments.
