Concert Photography (open thread)

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this should be in People or Misc, but what if it's a shot with no people? I don't have many concert photos, but have been wanting to get into it more and would love to see what everyone else has.

But, but the 18mm is garbage it can't take pictures look at the extreme corners at 200% ;)

Yep it's just awful, if I shoot wide open, under expose by 5 stops then recover the image in Lightroom and boost the shadows by 200% you can really see how bad the lens is

I've been thinking of ideas for a new show and this came together when gathering up images.  Coincidentally all shot with the 56mm, though I typically shoot closer and wider.

I think they work nicely as a set... all monochromatic, impersonal, set back a bit (though for the sneaker shot I was in the photo pit right up against the stage).  Based on the room where this might happen, I might do half the show like this on one wall and half more in your face, identifiable stuff on the other.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Awesome photos everybody. :yesway:

 

Here are a few from a bar show I shot Saturday night. Really wishing I had FW4 for it. :lol: The band wants to do a promo shoot, hopefully sometime this week. :yesway:

The monochromatic set is stunning and really recreates the feel of alternating colors in the shows. Combining with wide angle shots gives a great balance. What settings do you find give you the most reliable exposures?

Had my X-T1 in my coat pocket with the 35/1.4 on it at the opening gig of the Fun Lovin' Criminals world tour in Dublin last night took these from the middle/back of the venue. I know the guys from my music days so I was going to be shooting the gig but as the wife got me a birthday gift of two tickets thought I'd just go and enjoy but, well you know...

Is that Eric Fish in the second and third image?

Anyway, very good shots! I love how you did just not clip his fingers in #2, but I like the contrast in #1 & #3 better. Can you tell us about ISO? Are those Acros(?) out of the camera, or did you process them yourself?
