    This is the kind of photography that really really interests me. I love #2 and #4. Very cool, and the dude with the Amsterdam t-shirt is the best! I love Tiesto, and Holland DJ's rock anyway;)

    They all need more make up!!

    just kidding! I think these pictures really capture the moment (or pretend to, which does not matter as long as you cannot see the difference ;) ).

    However, one thing I always wonder, and which disturbs me is the sweat-reflections (or grease-reflections?) in peoples' faces with these kind of shots. Does anyone know a way how to easily prevent it without applying make up (which would wreck the situation)?

    maybe polarisers? or post processing?

    what i wish i had was an external flash, speedlight, and aim up at angle so the light bounces off the ceiling, usually that helps with those kinda reflections, all i had that nite was the pop up flash on the D50

    Nice shots. Sometimes candids come out the best.

    For the flash you could always use business card technique. Hold the card in front of the pop-up flash at a 45 deg angle to bounce the light off the ceiling. Kind of a pain but it works in a pinch.
