High ISO concert images with Tam 28-300 (Images)
Posted By: jsundin, 07-04-2007, 08:55 AM

I was using one of these shots in the dpchallenge last week, so did not want to post, but now that the challenge is over, here they are. I went to Las Vegas two weeks ago and, at the event, we had a private concert with the rock/pop group Train. It was fun and I was able to get up very close. I went with ISO 800-3200 for this. I wish I had my FA50, but I just used my Tamron 28-300 for these.

Here are a few of the opening band. I never got their name. They are from Boston, I think.

And from Train.

Wow. Great shots. The second photo is perfect. Personally I like a bit of noice in concert photos. I don't know if it is because my age but all the good old concert photos had a bit of grain. It adds to the atmosphere.

Eddie, maybe it is my age showing as well, but I don't think I am *that* old. I like a bit of grit and grain in my concert shots, just like in my music selections. I do get comments often from others that want all concert shots to be ISO200, pure and pristine and processed. I guess they like their music that was as well?
