Anonymous said: hi!! i'm shooting my first professional show tomorrow and i'm slightly nervous. i was wondering what ISO you usually stay around, because yours are so well lit yet barely grainy and it's fabulous
ughhh I am SO sorry for the lateness. I always shoot around 800-1250 or even higher at times if needed. how was the show!?
Anonymous said: what are your thoughts on photographers not receiving photo creds after an artist reposts them?
It’s nice to have photo credit but if not…I understand the reasons. once you put your work on the internet…it’s there. it’s going to be copied, it’s going to be reposted, your watermark will probably be cut off, etc. so musicians don’t really know any better and repost whatever photo they find on tumblr or instagram. and those photos are most likely your photos re-posted by some kid who threw on their edit and didn’t credit. but that’s what ya gotta deal with (unfortunately) if you post your work on the internet. it happens. but if you are WORKING for the artist (ACTUALLY getting paid) then I would definitely expect photo credit at all times.

I don’t think I have anything else this month but next month I’m gonna try to shoot the Honeymoon tour (pvris/mayday/tonight alive). Any other tours I should shoot??

I do! If you’re a floridian I highly recommend getting one.

It’s possible but only when you’re really well known in the scene and/or have those connects (band friends/tour friends/close with publicists) that could get you in.
Anonymous said: Hey! Thanks for always giving such awesome advice! I saw that you mentioned you loved your 35mm f/1.4L lens and was wondering if you have another suggestion of a similar lens that is cheaper? Thanks!
You should get the sigma 35! I know there’s a small dent in their price next to the 35L but honestly, it seems like a way better lens. A few friends of mine own it and say it’s surprisingly faster and much sharper. My 35L focusing can be so incredibly off sometimes but the Sigma 35 seems on point (from what I’ve seen/heard). You can also invest in the nifty fifty. If you do decide to get the 50mm, save up for the 1.4 instead of the 1.8. Yeah the 1.8 is cheaper but the 1.4 is just a better built and produces better results. It’s also a lens that will last you for years— the 1.8 breaks pretty easily if you’re not extremely careful.
