First Concert Shoot
« on: April 20, 2014, 10:26:08 PM »
My high school had a student run electronic music concert last weekend.  My friend who was one of the musicians playing at it really wanted me to photograph it.  Brought my Canon 5d mkii, 50mm 1.8 ii, yongnuo yn560ii and a tripod.  Manually focused for a lot of the photos because autofocus couldn't lock.  Would like some feedback on my photos.

Hi Andy.
Photos are not bad for a first go, to me it looks like it was a pretty uninspiring subject, hard to get enthused about.

Cheers Graham.

Thanks you for sharing, not a bad effort considering 50 1.8.

I'd would try converting some into BnW for example the 4th image of the guy with in the hat.

You took pictures of a concert and missed the band?  ;D  (Giving away my age, that's what I'd call a disco!)

That looks like a really difficult situation to shoot in.  I've tried a few concerts and having a dark background tends to help but you've just got open space and those brick walls.  Lots of low level background light.  Stick at it, my guess would be that pictures from behind the decks into the crowd or more from the sides if you could shoot against a darker background may have worked well when working without the flash.
