Default Old shots from a Yellowcard concert, first concert photographed

Funny thing is, my best pictures were of the opening bands...haha!

CnC always welcome!

1

2

3

4

5

6

7

8


All were shot with my D30, no flash, ISO800-1600 and switched between my 70-210 and my 50. I took over 300, most of them had "security" personnel in the shots, but what can you do?

I find #3 and #4 to be my faves. from this set... Some seem a bit soft.

I've done no PP on these, so feel free to show any improvements.

Biggest technical problem is the blown highlights. (all images except #2 and 4)
Some are more then 1 stop, maybe 2 overexposed.
Did you shoot Raw? You might be able to recover some then.

I like #4 the best, but would crop and brighten it a bit.

I noticed that a lot when I was going back through trying to pick the 8 best. Unfortunately, I didn't shoot raw. I only had a 512 card and had to take lots of pictures.

In the future, I'm getting a bigger card and exposure bracketing, in addition to RAW (or is that redundant?) I really haven't used RAW in the past, I think it's about time.

edit: I also don't have a khaki vest...do I need to get one?

IMO shooting Raw *and* bracketing is redundant. You can recover about a stop in Raw (with quality loss obviously), but my experience with bracketing is that the best shot will have the worst exposure

Khaki vest?

I'll have to play around with it some, the 10D is showing up today to replace the D30 (I enjoy being a few years behind the curve...gear is cheap!).

I'm a little embarrassed to say that I never did figure out how to exposure bracket with my D30, not that I tried too hard. In a setting like this, I can definitely see your point, long exposures would make bracketing a real chore.
