    This was my first concert shooting with my Nikon D80. I don't know about other people's experiences shooting concerts, but I was really shocked how different digital reacted to stage lighting than the traditional film cameras.
    The only way for me to get nice looking shots was using the in-camera spot meter...then of course, photoshop.
    Overall, a cool concert to shoot and great music to enjoy.

    This maybe a double post as I put this in the 'shots>people' post. This was shot in a small venue/gathering at Waterloo Records in Austin:

    Floyd..
    I'll take mine pink... Pink floyd is an old group known for spectacular shows with a message. This is "House of Floyd" a traveling band doing the Floyd thing. A small spectacle show, but they do a good job

    Shot wide with a 50 1.8

    While Pink Floyd is an acquired taste they still have fans, for them - this link. Pink Floyd in Venice '89 (in St Marks Square) an event I missed by ONE day...

    I never knew Pink Floyd is a group, i always thought he is a solo singer.

    Hey Rags,

    I moved this to the One Stop Live Music thread. I think it fits in better there than in Street & PJ.

    Nah. No solo "branded" singer, more of a spectacle concert band (no clubs) whose songs had a moral tone (popular in the 60's - 70's). apparently torn apart by egos and in fighting.. too bad, they had a good franchise.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Joyn Mayer @ Sound Academy (half way back using LV over my 5'2" head for the first time, dodging arms, heads and a sea of P&S vying for 15 min of fame on YouTube). Then there were the girls trying to squeeze past us screaming "pick me John, pick me". As if...

    Nice Patti. I vowed to myself I'd never go to another Mayer concert until the fans grew up a bit....that was in 2004. Not sure that's going to happen until this guy is in a walker! lol

    I feel your pain. This one wasn't bad because it was a 19+ venue. Even with the screamers, he is just so good live that I can't stay away. You'd notice a big difference in his music now compared to 2004 and the band is so tight.

    These were a few from the local 'KISW Salutes the Shield' fundraiser. All P/S shots, but fun, and worth the price of admission. All Proceeds went to the Lakewood Police Guild and the families of the four fallen officers.
