You are in the photo pit, a small area with other photographers and security. The rules are simple, first 3 songs and no flash. The house lights go down, the crowd is pushing up against the barricade and your adrenalin if pumping. There is pyro, strobe lights, and the music is so loud you can feel it in your chest. There is no time to waste, the pressure is on, you steady your hand and take the shot while fighting for position and dodging crowd surfers. Concert photography is challenging, but the most rewarding.
