Unhappy "Newbie " First Concert Glasgow Oran Mor "artist "BIS"

Hello everyone ,I'm posting up a few of my shots from my first offical GIG a.I've
been doing photography in my free time for a year now however I'm only now pushing into concert photography (my real reason for taking up photography).

First im using a

Canon 400D
Canon EFS 17-85 4-5.6 IS USM
Canon EF -70-300 4-5.6 IS USM
SIGMA 24-70 F2.8

My setting for most of the night where
Manual
ISO 1600
Auto W/B
Evaluative metering
AI FOCUS
Shutter 1/30 1/60 for canon 1/100 Sigma

1. Camera settings. how do they compair to your own set up.

2. Would you be using manual focus

3. Is my Camera up to job of low light concert photography

4.Im doing another Gig in the same venue on Friday i think i've pick up
a lot of my own faults. Do you have any advice.

Welcome to POTN. Please post bigger images ... maximums are 800 pixels on the long side and 100KB ... little images are hard to see. Have you read the FAQ, a sticky thread near the top of the list of threads in the Performing Arts Forum? You might benefit from a Nifty-Fifty or other faster prime lens. You don't really need to shoot RAW but it gives you a lot more image to post process ... it only took me 30 months of shooting for pay to decide it was a good idea ... well, that and Rene beating me up about it continuously!

1.: Similair. Small differences. I use OneShot AF with shorter lenses, and Av (Evaluative) when light's changing fast. I use partial metering when shooting M.
2. No. AF is better then my eyes.
3. Yes. Your lenses (apart from the Sigma) aren't however (Too slow IMO)
4. Use the Sigma. Watch the lighting & performance and wait till you get what you want.
5. No. Yes.

Agree with Dwight the images are too small to see much, but the first looks okay.
Second the mic is in the face too much, and it looks soft. (might be the red lighting)

Cool I shoot mainly rock / metal with a little bit of indie.

What camera are you using? Take it photography is just a hobby?
