The event

I will never get tired of stressing out the values of really understanding light, it forms the basics of great picture taking. But, it comes at a price!

It's kind of like that boring manual of your latest gadjet device, will we read it from cover to cover? even though by doing so, it will lead to a greater understanding of the product :-) no?...well I didn't think so either!

   It matters little how much equipment we use; it matters much that we be masters of all we do use. -Sam Abell, "Seeing and Shooting Straight" by Sam Abell

For my shot today, I often, while doing a concert, try to capture the volume of people at these event's and at the same time try to make the shots as artistic as possible. I like this shot, mainly because of the inter-play of light from the stage onto the crowd.

it's almost friday...enjoy!

Darn, lovely lovely shot. I love the way the shot sort of pans over the audience and the lighting here is spot on. Converstion to monochrome a dream.

Well, I consider myself clearly and definitely SKEE-DAZZLED.

Yes very nice how the light just catches the tops of the audience's head. You did capture the feeling for sure. That's hard to do. smile

Now this one's dark too, but in this case it's exactly right. You've achieved your aim and made it artistic as well as showing the attendance figures.

Are you and official photographer at these events, or do you have to whip your 5D out surreptitiosly from under you Mackintosh to get these concert images?
you certainly achieved your aim
you artist you
