Shooting Concert

Recommended Posts

Seeking advice for shooting a rock concert.

 

Major act so big stage lights in a big hall. Only short clips, no audio. Using a Scoopic MS, Ultra16 Modified for portability. Probably will have a good monopod.

 

Planning on shooting V3 500T, concerned about the crazy contrasts in exposure with those lights. I've shot similar shows in Super 8 and metered for the talent, then locked it in with moderate success.

 

Will be transferred with a skilled colorist so I'm guessing I just need to be careful not to majorly overexpose.

 

Any tricks to consider?

You needn't be that concerned as the stock has a massive amount of exposure latitude, both over and under. Expose for the talents faces and you will be fine. I would be worried if shooting digital, worried about contrast. No worries with film.

Thanks, that's why I'm lugging the old Scoopic around.

 

You could probably get away with using the 13 or 17 if the lighting is as big as you expect. Who is the act? I love shootin rock shows.
