    heres a few shots from monday night of "the groundnuts and independents", a local punk band here in swansea...

    it's difficult to take live shots with a flash because you lose all the stage lighting, does anyone know how to overcome this? (apart from converting to black and white)

    thanks

    Cant answer your question but thought I would just say I love the photos.

    #2 and the last are my favorites, but they are all cool shots.

    Flash´s not a good friend of concert photography unless you use it with long expositions. The way to keep stage lightning goes through using high iso and wide open aperture

    Then, the way was taking long expositions to let stage lights come -slow-sync flash-. You´d get a moved image but the flash is there to freeze. A trick: use rear courtain flash. You will capture movement and a shaply subject at the end of it. Very dinamic images, cool for concerts
