You don't have to go 'full lamens', you can say HSM or USM mate

Um, by fast lens I'm talking zooms with a constant 2.8 aperture and primes with an aperture of 1.8 or less, lets more light in therefore makes it easy in the dark. And as I use nikon if I was refering to stabilization I would have probably said VR, mate.

That is the thing Nismo when pushing the wider apertures, stuff all DOF, I do use my autofocus, lucky for me the SB-900 has a great IR focus assist as well as being able to be used without firing the flash. I remember the old school film SLR's had an IR assist and it was great in the dark, but these days its a lamp on Nikon's, your flash being raped on canon (inbuilt), why?

actually hsm/usm are focus systems, so being a nikon man you would have said silent wave or af-s

no shame at all in it. you only use it if you need to. ive only recently started shooting at 12mp (jpg) only cos it was asked of me. all previous years all i needed was 6mp jpg. i dont do alot of post or print a0 or butcher crops but each to their own.

(dont let ppl run the "its just like using film" bull plop on you either )

Nice one, do you just turn up with a camera and they let you behind the DJ and stuff? Or are the bouncers and staff informed before hand?

You will find it varies alot depending on the venue and the show, some of the bigger acts their management can limit access to their own photographers, but you will find many of the smaller gigs will let you go where you need to.

theres of course the getting into the club with your gear in the first place.
quickest way to make it so you never shoot there is to try and blag your way in. dont be a dick, go thru the proper channels

Also don't be a dick when there, it can screw things up for other photographers later, I've had to do a heap of good PR work with a lot of the Adelaide promoters/venues to repair damage done by other contributors who have done the wrong thing in the past. It's not only about going through the right channels but being a good representative for the site/club/promoter, whom ever you may be working for. This tends to make it easy in the future and I find often can still get you in the door of shows without formally organizing anything before.

The zoom (or movement) during the exposure looks cool

yeah 'twas some zoom action going on in that 2nd shot

Decided while he was warming up I should try take a few different shots to see if I could do 'em.

Kinda wish I didn't hang that Chris Adler thing behind him now tho - plain black background (with my lovely Mapex banners of course) would've looked neater I think

I think you did great, especially considering it appears that the lighting in the place isn't great. Drummers are like the burst to shoot too 'cause those fuckers hide behind massive amounts of gear and never ever sit still...gosh!

Seems like a good place to get started
Hi there, I have had my camera for about 2 months now and love mucking around with it and would love to get into event photography. These are some pics from my 3rd gig with most the pics of my friends Collarbones. Would really love some feedback and how does one get around to shooting for itm for gigs and stuff?

Hey there fellow photography lovers,

just wanna get a bit of a heads up on what you guys think of my first ever event shoot - ie. what I did right/wrong, major improvements that I should work on, tips that you've all come across etc. Here's the link to the album => http://www.inthemix.com.au/gallery/3...Island/photo#1. So yeah, go nuts with the criticism (preferably of the constructive nature though), but yeah, be as honest as possible. I know that learning from my mistakes and downfalls will ultimately make me a better photographer, so I guess it's best to learn from you more experienced folk now. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Cheers Nismo
