    Located at the comet in cincinnati (www.cometbar.com). This is my first attempt at shooting a concert. My first problem was that I don't have a flash (other then the crap one on my 300d), and the bar is unusually dark (compared to most concert venues). There is no real "stage lighting" only a set of regular track lights on the ceiling.

    Equipment used was a 300d and a canon 50mm 1.8. Using 1600 ISO i found that on parts of the stage, i couldn't set the shutterspeed fast enough, but on other parts it was just right wide open. While i really like this lens, I find that in many cases its just too long on this body. A flash might allow me to use my wider lenses.

    Let me know what you think! I know i need to get a flash, but other then that, what could I improve?

    Nice!! Even at 1600 ISO, the pictures look great!!!

    I'm hoping to do this for shows back in Chicago too. I have the same lense.

    for your first concert, you've done well. i agree 1600 did you well and helped steady some of those hard to get shots...especially in existing light conditions. i especially like 1, 3, 5, & 7.

    thanks for sharing!
