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.

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?

    • That's a really funny question, since it would have been easy to calculate it yourself based on the file sizes! 😜
    • Have you tried pulling out the main battery and leaving it sit on a shelf for several days to let the settings backup battery / capacitor completely discharge? This should cause the settings memory chip to lose all of its current settings and go back to the factory defaults — as of the last update. 
    • Hi lolo,   have to say I can't believe that this has not had more attention as you have done an absolutely incredible job here! I was in the exact same situation of moving from LR to C1 and really loving it except for missing my film styles pack and finding the native options available for C1 not quite there in terms of accuracy and quality. I looked all over the place before finding this post and links. What a relief!  Many thanks for your efforts here mate, very much appreciated!  cheers, LB
    • Hi there. I've just bought a second-hand X70 and I can’t seem to reset it to factory settings. When I choose reset in the menu I can't toggle to the required options, they're in red, all the commands I put in only toggles between 'ok' and 'cancel', the manual doesn't offer any help either. I would be very grateful for some help! Many thanks in advance.
    • Dimsol, I will mention something that may be very obvious to some but this happen to me. The shutter speed was set on "A" while I was testing my X-T4 in dimm light. I was under the impression that my X-T4 was taking 2 picture, but is was just the shutter opening and closing at 1/4 sec timing. Is this the case or do you actually have 2 pictures saved on memory card per press ?
