Tried my hand at shooting at a gig. Codazepp, a local Led Zepp tribute band was playing at an intimate venue and I turned up at the door with my 5D MkII and a couple of lenses (24-105 f4 L IS and 70-200 f2.8 L IS II) and asked for permission to take a few photos and got it without hesitation.
Putting this out on the forum and will welcome comments.
Hmm....looks just like Jimmy Page!!
Nice...do you have other shots of that show? If you want to do more shots of shows, you really might consider getting faster glass than f4, I know...I've run into the same thing. The 70-200 f2.8, however IS a good choice!! Likely as not, that one will be your work horse for this type thing.
If you are able to get close to the stage...I mean dead close or ON stage...I found my Rokinon 14mm f 2.8 wide lens gave some really cool perspective shots. It is cheap but a solid lens, about the only non-Canon lens I own.
But for the most part, I've decided I don't buy any more glass that is not f2.8 or faster....
Anyway, please post more shots!!
I need to dig around and find some more to post...
