ivanvernon - Thank you so much. No I visited a new local aquarium and I was shooting from the comfort of standing on the outside of the glass.

Thank you for your thoughts. I agree with you.

Here's one that I used a fish-eye for. Thought it was fun.

As an event and concert photographer, AFC is very important for me. Seeing the eye AF of Sony, it's making me consider changing brands for my pro work. I love Pentax but the AF is my Achilles Heel. My keeper rate has always been great and better than my Canon counterparts. Now, I'm falling behind.

Also, better flash compatibility with 3rd party flashes like Godox and Pro Photo studio systems

Concert shots done with K-3 II.

Stagnanat and keithw

Yeah I totally see what you are saying. I've shot small DARK rooms when I first started. I had one shoot in what looked like a guys apartment and it was lit with just 2 incandescent light bulbs. It was awful and I just had to tell the band that I need to use my flash because it was an impossible shoot. The band was fine with it because they wanted to publicity.

The worst is low light with blue or red LEDs. I usually change those the BW.

As for really high ISO, I usually expose properly and then I add NR in post. I set sharpening to 45 or 50 in LR and NR to 25 to 30. After using my K200D for years at ISO 1600+ I got pretty good at noise reduction.


All shots below with the K200D in super dark places around 2009 to 2010. I needed flash with some of them and I got permission from the band first. How do you like my sweet frame in the one photo?

Well done and it's great seeing another concert photographer on this site.

I'm not sure how you have your AF set up but I use single point continuous and I move the focus point around. I use LR Classic CC for my editing and I have no issue going to ISO 6400 and above. You want to get the shot. The photos of the women are shot at ISO 6400 and ISO 10,000 respectively.

I do understand the very low red LED light. That sucks to shoot in!

Also, shoot somewhat wide. Publishers want to see more musicians and stage and not so many tight shots. That's what I've been working on too.

K5-0 don't worry about the mosh pit. If you get a pass from the band you can go into the photo pit. If not, generally you can't take a "pro" camera anyway. You can get a small camera like a Sony RX100 anywhere which works great for concerts.

Cameras used:
*****Pentax K3, KS2
*****Canon 5D mkII
Lenses used:
*****Pentax DA* 16-50mm, DA 20-40mm, DA* 50-135mm, DA 55-300WR
*****Sigma (Pentax) 30mm F1.4
*****Tamron (Canon): 28-75 F2.8
*****Canon 28mm F1.8

I used my old K200D for a long time.

(The first 2 are from my 5DII and the rest are from my K3)
