Hey Guys,

I shoot Rise Against about a week ago and figured I'd post a few of the shots. It was my concert I had a pass for and I'll tell you it was an experience. If you want to check out the rest of the pictures take a look at my flickr. (external link) Thanks for looking!

I don't think they're soft. The first one looks like its focused more on the guitar/mic than Tim's body/head but I think it's a good shot. The second has motion blur because he was jumping. The third looks like a combination of focusing on the hand/mic and motion blur from his head moving.

Good job and keep at it. Would have been a great gig to be at and shoot!

Thanks for the C&C. None of those are cropped and are on the center focus point, so the center of each image was the focus. How would you suggest using focus points in the future?

Focus on the subject(s face).
Use whatever AF point is closest to that.

Using Automatic Focus Point Selection? I ask because much of what I have read suggests to just use the center point on the XTi.

The suggestion to use the center point is predicated on the basis that the center point is the most accurate sensor. However, this does not mean one does not need to compose the shot. If you insist on using the center point, focus on the subjects eyes (closest one) and recompose. Alternately, you can manually select the point closest to the intended focus (eye) and achieve the same or better results, as focus and recomposing can result in OOF shots when shooting wide apertures.

Awesome stuff, I can't believe there is actually a thread on this posted. I love this forum!

I'm shooting them this upcoming Monday here in Orlando. I'm pretty excited.

Did they give you the 3 song rule as well? (You can only photograph the first 3 songs)
