    Wow, I can almost taste the wine thats being poured in the first shot! Just make sure that your foot doesn't kick over the glass! I dig the colours on the first three shots, especially #2. You are tpf's official live concert photographer! ;)

    Oh yes, No.1 is special. Very crisp. Wonderful atmosphere.
    But I personally like the third one best. The blue appeals to me, and although it is a little blurred, the muscles on his arm are nicely to be seen (oh, erm, am I revealing a personal preference beyond photography here now????)...

    Hey fading...
    Firstly, that WAS an all ages gig. the under 18s had to sit upstairs and we actually sat up there with them for a while. it was a great view. so id check into that one , next time.

    Secondly, gigs like that, you can take cameras to. I was leaning on the stage for some of those. Nobody cared I had a camera. However, even gigs where you arent allowed a camera, ive smuggled one in many times. You just gotta know how to hide them.
    I have a friend who sticks them down her bra. :shock:

    I'm not in sydney, I checked out the brissie ones - only overage gigs...

    I have taken cameras in a few times - and I have attended my fair share of camera-friendly concerts... (I have taken my camera into ones that have banned cameras, as I have also been into overage gigs - but we had good defence)...

    Actually - I like bands - I like following them... They get you to great places, like the pub. lol...

    I tried to take my camera to train & live - but they had metal detectors... so i chickened out...

    The big problem a lot of bands have with cameras is the flash. Having the stage lights in your eyes is bad enough without getting it from the audience.

    I like #1 and #3 also. #3 is an example where having the subject centered works. I would like to see more of the guitar, though. There's empty space above his head, so the camera could have been tilted down to do that. Even so, the pic rawks!

    awright!! first- thanks for sharing these...

    first shot is well composed, love the color and tone. tripod?
    i really like the way you wove the wine thread into the series. i am going to be shooting a local band sometime this spring, so i'm looking for creative inspiration like this. was there some special significance to the wine, or do they just do that every gig?

    you captured the atmosphere of the live band club scene very well, mostly the color tone you used but also the colors themselves. any photoshopping? looks like not. i also like the slower shutter speeds you used; you were probably forced to to keep the colors intact, no?

    what kind of music? one of lead singers pregnant?
    cool shots, girl! thank you! :D
