Hi all, I got just contacted by a local band if I can shoot their gigs friday (tomorrow) and saturday as their usual photographer doesn't have time. I said I'll do my best, but I never shot a concert, so do you have any tips? I probably take only my NEX-5 and the 24mm f/1.8 lens with me - changing lenses in such a mass of people ain't easy ... I hope I can get away with f/1.8 at ISO 3200. This could be a problem especially at friday, because the place they play is pretty darn dark. Light shouldn't be as big of a problem saturday, but the location looks a lot more boring. In both cases, I can go right to the stage without problems, but as the stage is pretty small I can't get on the stage without interrupting them. I don't want to use a flash as this usually destroys the ambient light totally. Do you think I'm okay with this? And - Steve Huff once recommended only shooting the first 2 - 3 songs a band performs because they are most powerful then. Any experiences whether that's true? Thank you for any help, I really don't want to get back to them without a few good pictures, and for me as a landscape photographer that's a whole different world, you know. Oh, and if you shot a concert, please don't hesitate to post pictures here with settings and how you made them!
