    I'll post of few of my photos, just looking for some opinions, I don't wanna post too many, cause the thread could become huge very quickly.

    tyler, tyler, tyler, this couldnt have come at a better time for me.
    your photos are fantastic.
    i love them. im going to check your site out too.

    got any tips?
    ive got a gig coming up and i want to know what are the best ways to shoot.
    i'm hoping to be fairly close to the stage, so i know i won't need a flash. just not sure about shutter speeds and aperture..

    im a major amateur, got any tips you could share with me? i'd be very appreciative!

    i take it you are shooting film...

    for the sake of simplicity and my current lack of an slr, I always shoot digital.. but as i shoot in manual.. i do set all the aperture and shutter speed settings, but im not sure how well they will transfer.

    The other thing is that I always shoot with a flash. I try to keep the ISO as low as possible (never higher than 200) just because i hate the noise you get...

    now.. i do a couple of different things... when i want a clean, image, i usually shoot 1/60-1/80 with and f-stop of about 5.6-7.1

    if i want a little bit more colour (to get the reflection of the lights off of the band members) i try to drop to about 1/30, and shoot with about 6.3-8.0...

    now that also depends on distance.

    For the blurring onces... you get the clear image whenever the flash fires... and i shoot about 1sec shutter, and always shoot small f-stop >= 8.0 so that i dont get too much light entering the lens when the flash isnt firing... i hope this helps... like i said, i always use flash, but if you are shooting 200iso or higher, you can probably get away without it, also i dont always have the best lighting conditions so flash helps.

    Hi Tyler,
    Opinions as follows: # 1, 4, 7 & 8 are very good.
    # 2 & 6 are OK.
    # 3 don't like it...sorry!
    # 5 absolutely excellent!

    Remember that's just my opinions.
    Keep at it, you're pics are great!
