This probably will be impossible for some of the largest venues, but I've found that by being nice to the lighting techs they'll throw a spotlight or two your way ;)

These pictures were taken at a winery in Temeculah CA a few years back. A little background...The jazz group Fourplay was getting ready to go on tour to support an CD release. They performed at this winery for maybe 150-200 people. I was able to walk right up to the stage and take pictures and nobody cared. These pictures show Nathan East on bass; Larry Carlton on guitar(no longer playing with the group) and Bob James on keyboards. All legends in the world of jazz. An afternoon to remember for sure.

I really enjoy shooting concerts.  I do some work for a website and in turn often get a chance to get in to some pretty great shows.  It also gives me a chance to really test the limits of the 6D ISO capabilities.

Really liking some of the shots in this thread.  The rockinon 14mm was an inspired choice for that shot cayenne.  A couple of years ago I went to a Springsteen concert and was able to sneak in my 60d and 55-250 and got these :D

I thought this one was kind of neat....shot with the 14mm Rokinon manual lens.
That's a bold lens choice for a concert!  The shot turned out really well, so it was a good idea for sure.

Thank you!

This was at Voodoo Fest a couple years ago in New Orleans. I was able to get on "staff" for the event..so, I was in the pit and this was one of the small stages and I was able to be very close and lean right on the stage for some of the shots.  Also, for most of this there was none of this 3 songs and out thing....

This was my first gig ever shooting something like this. I didn't get paid, but for taking shots (and I can use them for my own self promotion) I got free admission, meals...and access virtually everywhere on the grounds.

It was a great fest and portfolio builder. I took over 3K shots..and really need to find the time to dig in there and start weeding through all of them and working on the gems a bit more with post....

Some great shots there and I really like the way the lights fall in that keyboardist shot

I was thinking the same, really like the shots but The Cure have not aged well . . . the people up on the balcony give a great depth to the "Auntie" shot though.

Excellent shots.  The one of the keyboard player is particularly appealing, it's ermmm the composition I think  :)

I really should look into a full frame body for concerts because those are really good shots.
