Taken with a Sony Cybershot DSC-HX100V.

These were my two favorite shots of their set. I hope you like them. I am a total amateur getting more serious about developing skills as I truly enjoy this creative process. Any feedback is welcome.

Nice man. I'm going with the first one personally. The highlights are a little blown on that second for my liking.

Thank you! I agree on the second one. What corrections would you suggest post?

I agree, the first one is better for me too. Although the second is good too, I can feel the atmosphere of the show from it...

The first one is my favorite as well. I tried adjusting the highlights on the second one but this is as good as I could make it without making it look overproduced. Stage fog is a real booger to deal with at times. I haven't learned how to work with it yet.

Pavca.838, how do you like your 60D set up for concerts? I am researching equipment as I am now maxing out on what I can do with this camera.

BJWOK, I looked through your work and love the feel of it. I'll be following your posts on this forum.

Raeannaj, I didn't have a chance yet to test the 60D on a concert. But overall I like it very much. The only problem I have is that my longest focal lenght is 50mm, which is sometimes just too short. So I'm saving money for a telephoto now :)

Nice! I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

In Flames have pretty low lighting from memory....a lot of back strobey lights with little frontage even at festivals

Sorry man, only just saw this (wasn't auto subscribed with this new design of the site).

Aside from bringing down some of the highlights there isn't much you could really do. I think (on the second shot) his arms are just too far gone on the blow out to recover. Could be wrong tho...

No worries BJWOk. I appreciate your help. I will work on it a little more and see if those adjustments make any impact.

I like the composition and colours of the first image, but it feels a little strange, like Bjorn's face is not quite in focus. Or perhaps he was moving his head?

The second image doesn't really do much for me, unfortunately. I don't find the composition very strong, and the exposure is a little off. But since you say you're new to this, it's expected that you'll have room for improvement.

Again, thanks for you comments. If it looks out of focus or "off" I am willing to bet it is from camera movement. I was stuck in the crowd being jostled all over the place.
