    1. Dark people tan just as well.

    2. This is not a solarium, its a floatation tank.

    Thanks all Glad everyone likes the shot.

    Since its been quiered I can confirm that yes, the lighting as usual was low, and this was captured at f4, 1/250 and ISO1250

    Shot from the press pit on a 100mm, manual setting and of course no flash.


    Once you've dialled in your setttings, hoping the lighting don't change too much, concert photography with groups like the Chillis is a matter of chasing them around the stage with your lens, tracking the focus, watching for the right moment and then pressing the shutter. You need to watch everything, how they move, the expressions on their face, the stage lighting moving around and bang! press the shutter.

    You can't machine gun it like some people think, you'll just get loads of bad shots and fill up your buffer, and then miss all the really good shots. The most fustrating thing is watching the band in a energetic sequence, which are the shots you know will make the publications and you are standing there with a full buffer.

    The Chillis were a very energetic band, great fun and I was sweating just running around after them, getting the shots.

    Quote:Great shot, but would be better is you PS it and take out the other photographer's flash on the right.


    Admittedly that flash looks distracting on this small web version, but when printed as an 8" x 12" as the customer ordered, it actually looks better with the flash in. I did orginally edit it out, but that other flash contributes to a fair bit of bounce and actually adds into the shot, hence it got left in.
