Perhaps ISO400 was a little optimistic - a lot of the shots I took at this gig were over ISO1000, and I used as high as ISO2500.

Ok, I'm known for dark gig shots but perhaps a little too dark this time?

The princess of darkness strikes again...

And after a comment by lifesnapper, for those of you who'd like to see the band as well, they can be seen here on Youtube: Stone Cold Mary - Roadhouse Blues

Great work. The lighting is sublime and makes it a true pro shot.

Love all your Gig pic's Carol, but this one is just perfect. It has mood, atmosphere and feeling. Wish I could crank up the Volume so I could here it Smile

A good shot of the guitaristSmile
I do think it is too dark, and you have cropped off his hand and most of the guitar body.
Maybe a portrait view would work better?

Thanks for your critique Tim - it is a crop, but all I've done is remove the sides which were just curtains and the mic stand. It was also originally bright red... like a lot of amateur bands, they're limited as to lighting. I did try increasing fill light and exposure (it's already +2), but when I do that the noise and/or grain is just too much - and the horrible green curtains behind him stand out more, too!

This isn't a cop out, I'm always happy to have critique on my shots.
