So I got an opportunity to shoot for a group of music artists at the Forge in Joliet. Sure was interesting and good experience for being my first time shooting at a concert. I went to google/YouTube to look for suggestions/references for shooting settings. I used a Tamron 17-50 F2.8. I set camera between 1600 to upper 2000's ISO and at F3.2 as the lighting changed constantly. Not sure if this was the proper commonly used settings but I only had 20mins as that is all they had for playing time. There were other artists I took pictures of since I was already there.
I tried searching posts on concert lens, but only got threads from 3 years ago.
What is a widely used lens for this type of shooting? I ask as I might be able to do more for this group. Which will benefit me more since I will get some more experience, won't get it down but will definitely be less nervous than the first time. I did see a photographer that had what appear to be a Canon 70-200 lens. Thanks for the help.
