    If I have done my homework the right way there is no thread dedicated to nightclub and nightlife photography.

    There are several techniques to obtain excellent results.

    One of them is pretty much all the opposite of what the person new to nightclubs would instinctively think off...

    If there is an interest, I will post more pictures and describe some of the technique used.

    Of course, this thread will really take value when many of you participate with what you got (read good or .... less good ;-) )

    Let's see where this brings us to....

    wow they turned out great. I love the third one!

    yeah I'd love to know what you did to take them, I have a couple of friends in bands that want me to take photos of them and I have no idea - I usually take racing photos.

    Nice work. I've only tried once, when a friend asked me to take pictures for him. They are not nearly as good as yours, but here's a few of them. And thank you for posting your guide!

    My issues are the smoky clubs and the distance shots where the smoke really stands out. I plan on doing more clubs as I will be getting into a lot of band shooting.

    Thanks for sharing and they should make a nightclub photo thread.

    i'm thoroughly interested in knowing more about this technique! I did a shoot at a strip club and the pix came out terrible. 3 second exposures and jittery dancers just don't mix...so PLEASE how does one go about getting
    • smooth shots
    • acceptable grain,
    • properlly exposed
    • well lit {not typical flash-in your face, washed out crap}
