i have some friends that play in a band and are growing quickly in popularity. I'd like to get some really good shots for the website. But I've not been able to get very good shots in the past in bar settings. They'll be playing their biggest show yet at Nicks sports pub on march 3rd. It's very spacious, so there's plenty of room for me to move around. They've made it an 80's show, so everyone will be in 80's drag.(zebra pants and all) The band will be set up on a stage that's about 2 feet tall and sets in front of a huge window that runs as long as the stage and all the way up to the ceiling. The lights will be dimmed and they'll have a light show going on during the show. And also to the left of the stage there is balcony seating with about 6 tables that runs the length of the wall. And one major problem is that there's a square pole that stands about 8 from the stage which gets in the way of taking a full band shot from the front. I'll have my fuji digital,and my moms cannon 35mm, and 2 attachable lenses. i'm not sure exactly what kind of lenses they are, i don't have them in front of me. all I know is that one is about half the length of the other.(i'm not exactly skilled or knowledgable with these things, obviously). Basically what i'm asking for is some suggestions on lighting, angle, distance, what sort of camera to use....etc. anything that could possibly help me. below are some pics of the band playing a couple of weeks ago in the same bar, so you can get an idea of what the place looks like. I had some issues with lighting last time which i posted on a thread a couple weeks ago. Thanks for any help i can get.
