Took these in the garage of one of the members. Though I'd call it more of a shed based on size. All lighting was either there in the garage already or coming from my 1500watt softbox. (I brought 3 with but couldn't fit more in there since they were practicing) All shot on a T2i with a kit lens and edited in Lightroom 4.

Keep in mind these were all taken while the band was actually playing and are completely unposed.

I like the first one best. In #3, why show the rafters & cut their feet off?

You needed to do a custom white balance you had two different light sources.... in the first and third pictures you lost skin tones which can be recovered.


So if God made Man & Woman....whats his excuse for Nikon...

Usually I won't do that in a concert setting where there are many different colored gels on the lights. I'll just use the incandescent preset & let the colors be what they are.
Here I'd have tried a cloudy preset first & evaluated how that looked.

Thanks, that's a fair question that I honestly don't have an answer for.

What do you mean? I re did the white balance in lightroom so they were correctly balanced. The first picture for example was balanced using his white shirt.

There's nothing wrong with that. But don't fall into the trap of going for "Correct" all the time. "Correct" may not be equivalent to the "Right" WB for a shot? Would you have corrected a sunset? Or these, rather than just going for a pleasing look? ;)

So you're saying balance it so they are more like they were originally? I'm still not sure I understand.

What Frank is saying that the "technically correct" WB is not always the right one, at least from a subjective point of view.

The set looks good, but the Clarity on #3 looks overdone to me.

Okay, that's what I thought. Just making sure I was understanding correctly.

I never said he was, it's purposely over exposed a little.

Why over expose and ruin a great shot?

That is opinion, the band likes that look. But in your opinion an edit like this is much more preferable:

(Edited the exposure and white balance)

I'm not saying your wrong or I'm right it's an art form and each person is going to have their own style. I'm just trying to make sure I'm getting what you mean.

I'm saying natural skin tone is more appealing and yes it's an opinion....but if the band likes it by all means carry on....now I oversaturated to prove a point....that skin tones are important
