I would love to know how to get clubs to realise that they should have good photographs to portray the image of the club.

Good, from a photographers perspective, and from a club owners are two separate things. That's where the problem lies.

Most clubs are content with spray-and-pray photo sites so they can spam Facebook.

I usually only shoot with my 430 but tonight I borrowed a 580 and used my 430 off camera with the 580 on camera. I have never used this before and saw guys saying they used that on here. I decided to give it a bash tonight. Here are the results, give me your worst...

I wish the guys who did lighting had any idea what it's like to try and take photos in a room with smoke so thick you can only see 3 feet in front of you :/

+ Do people seriously think rodding the camera looks good?!

A selection from last night:

I hate plugging - but this is genuinely not a plug.
I really think this page could take off with the funny stories of nightlife photographers,
peple need to like the page, post a funny story/experience and share the page to their photography buddies!!

The only interesting person at the club last night:

Shot at ISO100, f4.5. With some ****ty old glass that cost me $80.

I know there many haters of using a low ISO, but it works for my style, and it looks so nice and clean.

I'm guessing you go through a fair few sets of batteries for your flash on a night?
full power bounced?

Hey thanks, I don't really have a method, I just keep adjusting in lightroom until I get a look I like then I save as a preset.

Eh, not really. I can get off a good 100-150 shots on iso100. That is more than enough to cover me for the night. If I am working a long shift, like 3-4hrs, I just bump the iso to ISO200.

Never had a problem running out of juice so far!

Hah, you're my polar opposite. I don't use flash and ISO 12800 doesn't scare me, and I only go down to 100 during the day (my primary club photo client is open 16-18 hours at a stretch and has a daylight component...) or at pool parties.

I jump between ISO 1000 and 2500 (depending on the colour and height of walls & ceilings in the club) with bounced flash. the darker the bounce surface the higher the ISO. Flash power is usually between full and 1/8 -0.3
