    These were taken with my Garden Variety canon last week.

    As you can see I have not touched up any of the pictures with PS. Please provide constructive criticism.

    Is there a way to reduce the amount of background noise without spending hours in photoshop?

    Live shows are pretty hard to shoot. Good job. What did you shoot at?

    The photos work for what it is. Why not see the "imperfections" as not limiting but accentuating the quality of the shot. I see not "band shots" but photographs of the MOOD of the performance.

    I really like the first one. It's quite mysterious and eery. Although the light 'interferes' with the image you can still clearly see what it is thanks to the silhouette of the microphone and the subject holding his guitar.

    If this shot wasn't 'staged' then you really caught him at a good moment(brushing his hair back with one hand and carrying the guitar in the other). If he had just been standing still with his arms by his side i don't think the image would have been so effective.

    I like the second one as well but i'm not so keen on the last one.

    Here are some other ones. Keep in mind all of them were taken during live preformances.
