Concert Features: Suggestions?

As I expand's content and think about improvements, I'd like to ask you, the readers, if there are any aspects of concert photography you'd like covered in show write-ups and other how-to/tips features.

For the show write-ups, the content breaks down into three primary categories:

  1. The concert experience/narrative
  2. The images
  3. The shooting notes (lighting, lenses, positioning, misc. technique)

Some of the write-ups have a more organic format that mixes the three (like the recent Avenged Sevenfold post), while others are more distinctly separate (like the post for HIM).

Do you have a preference between the two? Also, is there anything else you'd like covered that I'm not already hitting?

And beyond concert-specific coverage, do you have any suggestions for articles you'd like to see on how-to or concert photography in general?

Thanks, I look forward to any suggestions you might have.

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

Nikon Z 7:
I use two Nikon Z 7 for my live music photography. A true do-it-all mirrorless camera with amazing AF, great speed and fantastic resolution.


Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8S:
The 24-70mm is my go-to lens. The range is ideal for stage front photography and the image quality is superb.


Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.


Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.
