Last friday I went and shoot "gripin", a turkish band recoring for Sony, in a club called Studio Live. I used my D2xs (newly acquired to side my D2x), the 70-200, 50mm f1.4, 85mm f1.4, 12-24mm f4. I could only get access to a side of the stage, no front access unfortunately; this limited my access and angles quite a bit. However, here some pics for your enjoyment, all taken at ISO 400 & ISO 640.

I don't know alot about that type of shooting.

Sure are a bunch of colors:>))
Did you add saturation or is it really that colorful
They are all sharp and like your angles

WOW Vieri............. a wonderful series my friend!

My favourites are #1........... #2............ both show the lead singer totally engrossed in what he is doing with great tension in the photographs.

And #9............... astounding lighting and composition. The light behind the microphone is superb!

Honestly don't know how you do this??????????

Fantastic work...................

But.......... more importantly.. it is just so good to see you posting again! :cool:

Made me smile to "see" you again............. :redface:

Hey Gale,

to me, more than if it was really that colourful the main question to ask is, how do you like them, do they give you the "right concert feeling" or not... if they did, then is not really fundamental to know what it really looked like - if they didn't, is not really important as well - IMHO at least; as the old masters say, photography is an illusion anyway hehe :wink: however, in this case the coloured lights of the stage are responsible for the colors you see - or - at least - partially... :biggrin:

Hello Graeme my friend! First of all, is good to be "back" after some time off the cafe - too much to take care of at the same time I suppose :wink: but... I should try and keep visiting more often anyway! :redface: thank you very much for your comments, I am so glad you enjoyed :biggrin: hmmm how do I do it? Not sure... just pointing at something and clicking by chance a bunch of buttons I guess... :biggrin: seriously, thanks again so much - I don't know what to say - I am flattered! :redface:

I love what you accomplished here. Feel like I was there
Thank you very much! :biggrin: your comment is very much appreciated indeed :smile:

Simply astounding concert work. You are The Man!!!
Thank you Stuart! You are flattering me :redface: thanks again, it really means a lot to me. :biggrin:

Hey Gale, I see - hmm I didn't think about that, of course to someone who's never been to a rock concert like this (small club, intense colored lights) I am sure it would look quite strange :biggrin: I am glad you liked the pics anyway! :wink: Thank you for commenting,

Vieri --

These are wonderful !!
The first one has the makings of a classic shot
as in Rolling Stone magazine.
You should send them some of these photos !

The colours, lights and composition angles work
terrifically well and have lots of impact -- especially #3 and #7.
I love the smoky, "clubby" feel of the last shot too.

The first one is a clear standout in my opinion. Simple. Well composed. No distractions in the background. Sharp as a tack. No mic mouth (microphone covering the mouth). The only thing that might have improved it would be open eyes, but it works well as is.

Thank you Andrea! :biggrin: I hope they will sell nicely - they usually do, but one never knows... :wink: I am glad you enjoyed, and thanks again for your nice words!

Excellent work, you have really captured the essence of this concert.
Thank you very much Gordon! Your comments are, as always, much appreciated :biggrin:
