Shoot The Show

Nikon recently launched a contest in search of the coolest concert photos and I thought we could have our own – just for Booooooom readers! With so many amazing photographers frequenting this site and so many awesome concerts going on I thought it would be a fun way to wrap up the summer!

So here is the Booooooom + Nikon “Shoot The Show” Contest.

Booooooom x Nikon Shoot The Show Contest

I want to see the most amazing concert photos you got, ones that really capture the energy and excitement of the show. Nikon was kind enough to hook me up with a COOLPIX P300 to give away to one of you, so please share your best work!
