Fotografia de Espetáculos
Rita Carmo’s proposal is to demystify the myths about how to photograph concerts. After all, not everything is easy in the wonderful world of the show. There are many impediments, and many rules that make the photographers’ work difficult. However, there are little tricks that help to get around the imposed limits. Rita photographs concerts, but she also does portraits of musicians. And in this talk, the conversation can – and should – revolve around these two worlds that cross and complement each other.
