Captain Steve, that's some tricky lighting, how did you set it up. Awesome shots.
Thanks bud! tricky? yeah a bit, Concert photography is what I believe I do the best, well I think I have the best grasp on. Soo I was used to it this night.
settings you asked. well I shoot in M mode, constantly spinning the shutterspeed, I rarely look at the exposure meter in the camera screen as I usually know what shutterspeed to select with certain stage lights and brightness. I also never use a flash.
as I posted a bit ago my ISO was either 800 or 1000, wide open at f2.8. AWBalance, I actually only adjusted the WB a few times on a few of these pics in PP, I was surprised how well the 7D did with that this night.
I used evaluated metering, and always shoot in raw. and lots of Lightroom 3 tweaks afterwards to get the colors correct.
Love doing it.
