    Great atmosphere in these pictures, Dave. I bet the 75mm was ideal for this job.

      Hi John it was perfect, It would have been a struggle with the E30 quality wise and speed the singer did not stand still for 1 second. and the lighting was bad they were more focused on the audiance the the performers they wre mainly back lite, hence 3200 and 6400 iso wide open at between 1/80th and 1/250th second shutter speeds.

      One guy with a Nikon gave up trying, and kept looking at me with a puzzuled look, don't no why.

      Any way many thanks John for your comment.

        Hi Dave, I somehow missed these first time round.

        Well done catching them, the conditions look pretty difficult. It continues to amaze me how many "professional" light setups put most of the light on the background or audience rather than the performers. I suppose it is because when we are looking we can pick up on what we are interested in, but it shows up much worse in photos.

        You've caught a lot of energy there, good stuff.

          Thanks John, for your comments, a few times I got burnt out images cause some one randomly blasted with High power flood lights, to give an Idea when you are looking towards the stage all you got was brilliant white light, you just could not see anything else, what do the think of when they do this sort of thing.

            Yup, been there, done that. Thank goodness for digital cameras and large memory cards, it means you can keep shooting and don't have to fret about the failures.
