    Hi all, so 3 of my friends are in a band and they played a gig at a small venue last night, I decided to take my camera and I took about 90 pictures from different angles and I just want to know how to edit pictures of a band to make them look even better? I have started to use Helicon Filter and that is the only photo editing program I have. Here is one of the pictures, I think this is a great action shot, what do you think, any suggestions are more than welcome.

    Yeah that's a shame it's there and I didn't realise when I took it.

    Luckily for me it was a small venue I was at and not too many people there so I had quite a lot of room to move around. I saw your band photos on your site, they're pretty good :thumbup:

    I would suggest taking down the luminance on the dark side of the bar. Bring out the dark bits and draw out the bright bits. See what you get, if it's too dark increase exposure a bit and contrast.

    Ideally you'd get a final image that had the bassist pretty bright, and that back wall pretty dark. And yeah, watch out for obstacles ;)
