Hi from Melbourne

Hi everyone I'm ending my lurk around here. I'm Julia from Melbourne and I shoot with a K-5 along with a K-5 iis. I use them for mainly for concert photography where the K-5 iis' improved AF performs exceptionally well.

The weather sealing is especially important because I've had beer fly out of nowhere and land on me plenty of times. Here are a few shots to brighten up this post -

K-5 + DA*16-50


K-5 iis + FA77 limited


K-5 iis + DA*16-50

Welcome, I'm in the same line of business too, aye and it happens, thankfully not so often as I'm usually in front stage pit or side stage these days.

I'm too old to be out front with all the mad buggers now.

Hi jrl, from one Melbournite to another. great shots - all I've managed to sneak into gigs is a point-and-shoot. Envious!

Thanks all! The first shot there had a barrier to separate the crowd, but the other two didn't so securing a vantage point to shoot from was a must. Yeah, when I was first interested in taking photos of gigs I used to sneak in my old K-r just to build up a portfolio but I mainly went to smaller pub shows where no one cared if you were dangling a camera to practice. Now everything's accredited which makes my life easier.

Oh yes I've already encountered Sandy in one of the concert threads . Coincidentally, we also shoot for the same website (over at Tonedeaf.com.au).
