Last month while in New Orleans covering the Super Bowl, I had the chance to shoot rapper Lil Wayne performing in a private concert at the GQ Party held at the Elms Mansion. Along with being a big Lil Wayne fan I love covering concerts as there is usually really cool light to work with.

Last month while in New Orleans covering the Super Bowl, I had the chance to shoot rapper Lil Wayne performing in a private concert at the GQ Party held at the Elms Mansion. Along with being a big Lil Wayne fan I love covering concerts as there is usually really cool light to work with.

I know rap music is not many of my viewers favorite music but as a photographer this concert was wonderful as it really forced me to adjust on the fly with the rapidly changing light conditions.

Be sure to check out the camera settings as I really put these Canon’s through their paces with some ridiculously high ISO’s.

    Mark, I am a drag race fan, and an amateur photographer. I think you could take a picture of a 5 gallon pail of drain oil, and it would look amazing. Your ability to see the picture before you take it is a trait I am striving for. I have seen your work from the racing world, and I really enjoye it. I also loved your pics from the Superbowl coverage. I am a professional spectator and plan to track you down at my next National Event, which will be Norwalk, and introduce myself. Your pics here from the concert are wonderful too, and I envy you, and your work. Keep up the great work and please keep sharing it for everyone to see. John Mills
