Do Not Record A Concert
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Have you ever gone to a concert and filmed the event using a video camera or smartphone? You loved the performers, and the money you spent on the tickets was money that you had saved for several months and set aside specifically for the concert. Since you put so much into this once-in-a-lifetime event, it made sense to you to record it so that you could enjoy it again and again. There are two very important things to consider before recording an event on a smartphone or video camera, however: the enjoyment of others around you and your own enjoyment.

As awesome as it would be to enjoy a private concert with you as the only audience member, private concerts almost never happen. Most often, singers, groups, and other entertainers perform in front of crowds. Since you will be part of the crowd, it is important to consider others around you. They do not want to see your phone or video camera during the show. If you have ever been to a movie theatre where individuals in front of you were using their phones, you remember how annoying it was to see the light from their cell phones in the dark theatre. The people sitting around you will be annoyed if they see your phone or camera. In addition to ruining the experience for others, there is another reason to leave the video camera at home and put your phone away: your own enjoyment.

Many people bring video cameras to events such as graduations and dance recitals. They may be capturing the event on film, but they are not getting to enjoy it. Instead, they are having to worry about making sure the device is recording the occasion. When the festivities are over, they feel that they have missed out on something very special.

If you have a special occasion coming up, go and enjoy it without your devices. Enjoy the mix of emotions that you feel inside, such as excitement and happiness. Enjoy the suspense that you feel in the air. Talk to those around you, and wait patiently for the event to begin. Then, when it starts, sit back and enjoy it as it happens.

Sometimes, you may be able to buy a video of what you just saw. You can then take your video home, watch it, and remember the event forever. That way, you will have your memories, and no one around you will be annoyed.
