    Last Tuesday I travelled to High Wycombe to do my first band photography ever. I shot a gig with Turin Brakes, who were supported by Kevin Pearce. Below are some of my favourites:

    I took about 600 photos that night in RAW+JPEG mode, resulting in a 25GB mass of imagery to offload onto my laptop!

    Wow, that's a lot of shots.

    The ones here are pretty good.

    Concert shooting can be difficult with the ever changing lighting and quick movements.

    Good stuff. I do a lot of concert shots. A word of advise, if you are shooting raw and jpg, shoot with creative style black and white. It is by far more easy to focus and set up shots using black and white with red focus peeking then deal with abnormal concert lights.

    Yep, did that throughout! Saw that piece of advice on this very forum some time ago, don't think I'd have very good shots without it!
