While many yearn for a backstage pass to their favorite bands, photographers yearn for backstage access to their favorite corporate conventions and events. It is one of  the best places to shoot from to show context and relationship between speaker and audience.

When available, this is an exceptional perspective. It gives viewers of the photograph a contextual relationship between speaker and audience, as well as a strong emotional take on the energy in the room.

One caveat – If the front rows are not filled, this shot won’t work.  Stay tuned for an upcoming post: Fill the Front Row.
