    Hey guys,
    shooting my first concert tomorrow
    LMFAO at gossip nightclub

    tips please!

    im thinking
    20D + XT
    17-55 2.8 IS
    50 1.4
    85 1.8
    2x 580EX
    lots of eneloops!

    or should i bring other lenses?
    buddies 11-16
    70-200 2.8 non is
    30 1.4

    im thinking primes will be better since i won't need to bring a monopod for the 70-200 since it is non IS

    also should i bring the 11-16 for some super wide shots of the crowd?

    Thanks OTAP!

    Definitely bring the 11-16.. even use it on the band, get on the corner of the stage at foot level and get everyone in the shot..

    hahaha yes, I do suck at handholding



    anyone got tips on lighting?
    I don't think i'll be able to throw speedlights on to the balcony so direct flash might be my only option?

    you live in vancouver or just visiting? regardless, its cool to know there are other oters here :wavey:

    For the shoot are your pictures the ones that you see go up on the clubs website after the night? Or are you shooting more of LMFAO and less of the club

    dude, no direct flash... if you can, bounce it, or at least get a good diffuser.. direct flash = wtf in concert shots.. it's all about capturing the stage lighting
