Nikon LIVE Celebrates Summer Concerts With Shooting Tips and a Photo Contest


Summer is here and it's time to get outside, enjoy the sun, and take in an outdoor concert or two.  Nikon's big on that idea, and they're celebrating with the launch of the rock and roll oriented Nikon LIVE website.

The site features plenty of great concert photography by the pros.  But it works the other way around too.  Nikon has given cameras to bands that are capturing summer concerts and tours from their own perspectives.

The site also features some photography tips for both point-and-shoot and DSLR users, including the most basic and least often obeyed rule - turn the flash off.

If you're already experience with concert photography, there's a contest you can enter.  There will be a total of three running throughout the summer, starting with a contest ending July 14th to capture the coolest rock star moment on film.
