New to group, just saying hi
Hi. New to FS and first group I joined. I have been a musician (failed at it but love it) in Phx for a decade and now turned my focus to photography. Mainly doing promo stuff but just recently started trying to do concert photography. I am truly loving it but struggling at the same time. I have read all the "does and donts" but still can seem to get it done. It seems the big shows it a no brainier but local small shows it seem impossible so I joined this group in hopes to learn. The photos (I have not posted yet so I hope this works) is from a show in Phoenix Arizona and the band was In this moment...the lighting and stage performance are a dream...look them up you will want to shoot a show with them. While I am not a fan of the music...the show was off the charts.
I shoot a Nikon d800 and primary a 17-55 mm 2.8 or prime 85mm 1.4 as these are only len's I have. All these shots were shot from the pit about 8-10 feet away. I had iso cranked (hence all the grain) to 5k and shot as wide as I could. I have dozen of other concerts I have shot but the images suck. so and CC is welcome.
