    Went and photographed a gig for my friends' band, Hi-tide:

    Some are a little blurry which is unfortunate, oh well!

    I like the second one with the blurred hands.

    Cheers. I wasn't sure what people would think of the blurs, I think it adds motion to the image.

    Dim lights and fast motion make for some tough shots.

    Looks like you got some respetable shots.

    Last one would have been really amazing if you had only caught him as he was striking something. I'm sure there'll be more chances. You could really benefit from using a fast prime which would let you double or even triple your shutter speed (I peeked at your Flickr and the EXIFs).

    Yeah I had a 50mm f/1.9 but it turned out to be too long for quite a few angles so I was switching between it and the 18-55 f/3.5 kit lens

    I like the shot of the drummer, the blur adds to the shot. I would personally prefer less blur on the guitarists so maybe bumping the ISO higher would have enabled a faster shutter for those shots. Cool stuff though, I like :)
