I of course decided to bring my camera to try and capture some candid and live images with the new Nikon 24-70 2.8 VR and simply see what I could capture. You know I love candid photos so that’s exactly what I set out to capture while I was back stage. This was a very small back stage with a yellowish feeling light set up. It’s your job as a photographer to work in the situations you are given. Some photographers like to bring artificial light into the game but I personally do not like to use it when it comes to candid photography. I think it messes with your subject as well as slows you down as a photographer. Of course this is simply personal preference and you should do whatever works for you. 20151211_matisyahu_128

When I sat down to edit the images I figured why not share my process with all of you guys. I fired up screen flow and walked you through how I selected the keepers to edit followed by allowing you to watch each edit LIVE as I made it.
