Photographing Rap Concerts

Rap concerts? Is that okay? Am I old? I feel old saying rap concerts, but I would said rock concert, and that is my world so… maybe I am over thinking it. I have been photographing rap concerts as some rappers as pass through San Diego. Since I don’t really know any of the artists personally, I didn’t get to shoot portraits, but I have a blast photographing live shows exactly how I want to – and doing this for myself allows me to do that. Usually, when I am photographing rap concerts, I just bring a simple setup, my Canon 6D, a Sigma 20mm Art, Sigma 50mm Art, and lately I have been taking my Canon 70-200 as well.
