In concert
Posted By: skeuos, 02-23-2009, 07:05 AM

A friend of mine played an acoustic show at an informal venue a week back, so I took the camera and the 50mm 1.4. C&C appreciated.

I really like #3.
The other shots don't evoke any emotive responses for me and I like concert shots to portray some of the energy & vibe of being there.

#3 is very well done. I think the others suffered because you where the wrong side of the action.

Thanks, everyone for the thoughtsl very much appreciated. #3 is growing on me as well (it's the eyes . . .), my wife likes #4. I'm partial to #1, but I think I need to rethink that. I would have liked to take more from the front, but the way the coffeehouse was set up, any shots felt like I was shooting in someone's living room (straight from RAW file, only a quick b/w conversion):

Suggestions on dealing with that kind of situation also appreciated. Unfortunately, all the good venues don't allow photography. Grr.
