Thanks, Terri. Sounds encouraging. I wished the shots could have been sharper. Although under similar lightning conditions, this demands a really good capable camera. Other than that, do you have extra tips? I'm interested in seeing "starker" images than what I got now.
I like the color version of this last one. It's more obvious that he's onstage with the bright prop there. :thumbup:
You might could try lightening that first one (just a little) and/or bumping up the contrast so he isn't so gray. I think it might work well as a vertical, too. Not too closely cropped, just enough to become vertical.
