    These are from a Drive-By Truckers show back in January. Going into the show, I really had no idea what I was doing and had only read up a little on taking concert photos. I'd like to think they didn't turn out too bad. Any tips/critiques welcome!

    Actually, I take that back, this was my first attempt. Of course, I take my camera to the show and the first thing Patterson asks is for them to turn the lights way down.

    I don't have much to comment on but I would say 3 would be a good B&W because red lights make really good black and white shots. Looks like you had some pretty bad lighting to work with hence the motion blur in a few of them. I don't like the tilt on most of them i would definitely fix that. Besides that just work on composition and getting a sharper focus. GL!

    Thanks! I don't care for the tilt either, but seeing as I was being squished by 1000 people behind me I couldn't really move to avoid it.
