    Not very good at off camera lighting, but shot these last night for a friends band.

    The place was almost completely dark. Shot with a 420ex fired from a light stand stage right, triggered by on camera 550ex. :dunno:

    I like them.

    The last one would have been good to see less crowd and more of the drummer, but its all good.

    i don't feel like i'm looking at pictures from a live show... i mean they're sharp, clear......well lit. but that's partly why i don't like them. live music shots should be colorful with shadows everywhere IMO

    I agree with molsen. What I expect and like from concert shots is the natural lighting the shadows and great colours. The first shot is a nice shot but not what I like from music/concert photography.

    There was no natural light at the show, thats the thing. It was a budget HS production - just some kids playing at the rec center. :dunno: Ever been to a show like that? It's not really fun to be there and even less fun to shoot. The just dim the lights - there weren't even spot lights. Pretty :greddy:

    Next time bring gels and make your own light.
