Some good action shots...

I see the Canon 85mm f/1.8 prime, is providing some reasonable low light results.

On the assumption that the casino has some camera restrictions... Which camera did you use? How did you get it in to the venue? Did you get an invite to shoot?

Thanks! I was invited by the band's manager to shoot the event, and she cleared it with the casino staff beforehand.

There were some rules because the Wolf Den is basically on the casino floor. The rules were that I was not to take shots of the crowd, and to keep facing the stage so no gamblers were in the photos.

I used my 50D mostly with the 85mm, and some with the 17-50.
The only drawback was they tended to use a LOT of red lights, so I ended up converting a bunch to b&w.

Sounds real good... For a CT guy, you must be pleased that you can get the opportunity... Good luck pursuing more similar gigs there... and post your results here...

The red lights are real tough to get rid of, in post processing... If I use photoshop, than temperature adjustments and slight desaturation seems to work... I found most success reducing the red intensity while converting/processing from RAW... The B&W conversion often makes more sense.

Addendum Note: Here's a link to a show shot with the 85mm F1.8... Red light problems re: pic #5 and a correction sample done in CR2 is further down the page.

Nice! Thanks for that, I will have to give it a go. I did shoot these all in RAW to start with. I'm going to give it a try.

I guess the 50D doesn't do well with red eithor -- it kills my 40D for some reason. Can't focus accurately and images are not nearly as sharp. Wonder why. I do the same thing with the B+W. Your shots look sharper than mine.

Do the full frame cameras do well with red light?


5D3, lenses, tripod, and a flash.
