After taking Professor Hart’s photojournalism class in the fall, I have paid much more attention to photographs in major publications, such as The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times. I have never covered a concert before, and since the past weekend was the weekend of Coachella, one of the biggest music festivals in the US, I thought looking at various photographs from the event would be useful.
So many of these from the NY Times are such great examples of shooting right in the middle of the action, something that Professor Hart always stressed last semester. The photograph of the musician crowd surfing is an especially memorable and exciting picture. Not only is the photograph extremely well-composed, you can almost feel the crowd pulsing next to you to the beat of the song.
