    Worked a sound for a show last night and dragged the camera along just in case. I figured I wouldn't get any good shots of the band, because the venue would be very dark and I have no lens that is really suited for shooting in nightclubs. So I set the best I could with the 70-200 and went for it. Most of it came out noisy and underexposed, but I managed to get a couple of cool shots.

    only lighting was from the LED panels, and a couple of par 20 cans with heavy red filter in them. It was really dark, but it was a goth rock band. :hs:

    I never did, but Joe Rosenthal once did... you should all know it.

    I just randomly pointed, and got this. I was quite surprised with the outcome.

    I was surprised to get anything even worth keeping. The band was Bella Morte , great people to work with. Anyway with all the band and live work lately I think it's time I invest in something like the 50 1.2L .

    Taken 3 years ago before I knew anything about WB (in JPG)...it would look very different now, but I think it looks right with the color cast.
