    Hey, this is the first time I shoot pictures at a concert, my friend play clarinet in it. the lighting was different from a lot of stuff I shot before, I usually take picture of landscape. I didn't know how to use to flash efficiently so all were taken without flash except one. Okay, i took a few with flashes but only one was worth keeping. lol. Notice, most of my shutter speeds are low, I violated the rule of thumb regarding shutther speed and focal lenght plenty of times. I tried my best to keep steady. Tell me if the camera shake is bad.

    New goal in photography, learn how to use the flash efficiently, anyone have any tips?

    1) This one was the only one with flash in this series.

    i like them. the only things that bother me are the empty spaces in the upper corners of 1 and 3. the camera shake isn't bad; i don't really notice.

    Thanks for the comment, I did not notice the empty spaces before but now that I see it, it's kinda out of place. The camera shake was the thing I feared most cause I can't use a flash effectively and my ISO only go up 400. I holding my breath quite a lot that night. lol.

    hey there, I'm not sure if I completely understood your comment. Do you mean that the composition is bad and if so how could I improve it? Or do you mean that the seat I was in was not a good seat to take pictures? I was in the closest row to the stage. thanks.

    Yes the seat you were in was not a good one. Great for watching but not great for images. Also you were too low. Including stairs and the front of the stage kind of detracts the eye also.

    Hope that makes more sense.
