    Common Music Photography Mistakes: 7. Up-the-nose shots

    Common Music Photography Mistakes: 7. Up-the-nose shots

    Taken at Fairport Convention’s Cropredy festival, which has a high stage with monitors along the front. Using a 300mm lens on a full-frame camera allowed this tight crop from the back of the pit for a more flattering angle.

    It’s tempting to stand very close to the stage, but if you do this you’ll be shooting the band from below and this can result in a lot of unflattering up-the-nose shots.

    If your subject has a habit of bending or kneeling down, then you may be in luck and get a few decent shots, but otherwise you’re probably better off moving further back to widen the angle.

    Standing further back may mean that you need to switch to a longer lens, or zoom in, but you’ll get a better selection of shots for your trouble.

    It can also be useful to take a small stepladder or box to stand on so you’re a bit higher up.

    Watch out for flying objects if you block the audiences view though.
