Some time ago I went to a concert of one of my favorite Chilean groups, *The Three *, and was very well located in the audience. I was equipped with two powerful weapons: my Nikon FM2 and a 50mm 1.4 lens. A lens that wonderful and bright with Fuji Superia sensitivity made ​​the perfect combination.

I was able to perfectly capture the stage light and master artists, and thanks to my location next to the stage, I caught my favorite bass player in action.

The rest depends on how fast they can focus with a manual lens. In my case with these musicians, trying to focus and not losing the right time was the most exciting moments.

I hope you try it and you dare to shoot film concert photos!
