Nice panning shot, I tried last week but no success. I might have to try again.

Awesome shots srika, what's your lighting set up like for club shots?

@srika - nice club shots. :D

Srika I'm curious about your lighting too.

3) Holy high iso batman! 3200 is totally usable and for certain shots you can push it to 6400 without a problem. Way better than the 30D.

And of course the DOF is awesome.

thanks, how about I show you?

580ex2 + stofen diffuser or sometimes I use the built-in flash card and diffuser. I angle the head depending on the lighting conditions. The trick I use is ISO 1600 and the flash only as a fill light to light up subjects faces - the rest of the color is provided by the environment. This is a balance you achieve as a result of playing with the flash head angle, ISO, shutter speed, and finally with some tweaking in LR to get the exposure you want.

going from a 5D to a 7D and then back to using a 5D again (my first one was stolen, you may recall) - I can tell you this, the high ISO performance (I would rate that as 1000+) on the 5Dc BLOWS AWAY the 7D. Real happy with the 5D in this department. Not to mention the sharpness and clarity and overall IQ. And the DOF is also delicious. :)

Great results! I'll have to try this out sometime...

Glad you liked it.

I have a clarification to make, I said I use the flash to light up the subject's faces. This is clearly inaccurate, I am using the flash to light up the entire subject(s). The point I was trying to make was, I use the flash to ONLY provide enough lighting to light up the subjects - the ISO 1600 does a lot of the 'work' in terms of the exposure. And it also allows for minimal flash needed so you can get all the colors coming through. One of my objectives in flash photography is to make the flash as imperceptible as possible. I mean you should look at the picture and just see that it was exposed accurately, you should not see it and notice that a flash was used. Ok I'm rambling now. :P

Thanks again for looking and commenting.

no, none of those. I pretty much never use MF in the clubs. There's not enough time to do that, people want the photo quick and done with. I rely primarily on the flash's AF assist beam for targeting. About 20% of the night I will turn the flash off for when the lighting is bright or if I just want to be a bit more creative with lighting. But during those times there is enough environmental lighting for the camera to detect the AF.

So the flash isn't on ETTL? I have no idea how to even use my flash properly in such dim light situations. From my understanding you have your flash set to not output much light

I always use ETTL. I know about flash control more on the physical hardware side (meaning flash angle and physical modifiers), I've never used M. ETTL does what I need it to do. I usually have my flash set to full power. Although sometimes I go -1/3 or even less, depending on the lighting situation. However I am not using much light from the flash, since it is pointing up. A good portion of the light gets lost. In this respect I am not using the flash effectively, in terms of power. However, this is required to get that subdued flash-lit kind of look.

Here is another photo I liked from last weekend -
