This was my first attempt at a live show. Which was at the Park Theatre in Holland, Mi. These are of the bands, Fail the Hostage and Moorland.

Due to it being a new venue, the lighting was very tough to work with, but happy with the few nice shots that I got.

Fortunately, I am friends with the guy that hosts the shows, and have the opportunity to help set up the lighting for the next one.

Shooting live shows is definately a rush, and looking forward to doing more.

These were all shot with 350d and the 50mm 1.8

Yup, very nice. Only thing is the somewhat strange (and irregular) croppings.

Nice shots. Don't quite agree about the framing Rene, something about the quirkiness adds rather than detracts I think. But I would darken the two light bars left of frame and crop in frame 3. Perhaps that's what you meant Rene?

I like to keep the aspect ratio of my images constant. Comes from back in the slide days, where a constant change in size and/or ratio of images was very irritating.
I was also referring to the big amount of 'headroom' on some images. So, yes, this is partly what I meant ;)

Nice to meet another one. I was a television cameraman for quite a few years and you couldn't change the aspect ratio of that no matter how hard you tried.:evil:

Thanks for the comments.

These are primarily going to be web based pics, so I usually crop to the right feel, not the right aspect.
I would have a hell of time trying to print these for sure, at these ratios. I'll be working on that with my next set of shots.

Also, would the 85mm 1.8, be my best bet for my next indoor lowlight lens. I have maybe a 300-400 budget to work with at the moment. I have researched a bit, and think this may be the one, but would like any other recommendations.

Any fast prime is great for this kind of work... the 28mm 1.8 is also meant to be a good one if you feel you need wider as opposed to longer. The 85 1.8 gets absolutely fantastic reviews...

Nice work, btw, especially for your first time doing it :)

Will look into the 28mm as well.

I really would like to be able to get the full band/stage in focus.
I pretty much have a full range of positions, up to a balcony at about 50 yds.

Good start...the 50mm 1.8 is good, however a step up to the 1.4 will yield greater depth of field, higher speed and won't require a flash nearly as often. Unfortunately, after buying mine 50mm, 1.8 lens as the second lens with the new 30D camera kit, I quickly ordered the 1.4. I see a great advantage in catching all the stage action.

Don't hesitate to shoot 100-200 PICS during the entire show. The problem is being able to move around for better angles while catching everyone from the band. It's a lot of fun. Till security starts cuting in with warnings. The problems for others have been the use of flash. For me, it's not staying in my reserved seat.
Good luck.

I see, others, like the wider lens option. I also agree, if you aren't able to move around freely. Good close ups, I've gotten with a popular Canon EF 28-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM AF Wide Angle TeleZoom Lens. The IS take some time getting used to it's quick, wait, and then shoot sequence. I'm still not good at it yet. With the IS off, the wider angles are great while the close up zoom is stellar with a flash. Keep reading this stuff from all the other experienced photogs. I too am sort of starting out. I've taken hundreds of pics per show at approx. 35 shows so far this year. With approx. 25 to go. I'm starting to stick with the 50mm, 1.4.
Keep writing, reading. I'm learing a lot from the feed back fellow Canon owners share. It's great.

John
