Good idea, love music, so the theme is excellent. The Jazz picture is great!
My post was taken two days ago during Holly Week in Antigua Guatemala, sacred music. Holly Week means an extraordinary spiritual rewarding experience which you will never forget. Something different I wanted to share with friends.
this is an interesting photograph of a band playing. It shows a busy and lively background. On the other hand it seems you cropped the photograph, probably because the background was kind of heady around. Meanwhile, I am afraid there is not enough space at the right hand side, in front of the player.
Hello. Love the B&W Jazz photo. Im new to this site and to this group (obviously) and was pleased to see a group on Music Photography existed.
I live in a place that is full of music and am also sort of the unofficial photographer for my close friends band. I have managed to get a few nice photos here and there but am not at all satisfied w/ the majority of my photographs of them. Mostly concerning low light photographs w/ a lot of movement by the musicians and burst of stage lighting. I would love to be able to find a way to get some nice "in focus" shots in this low light environment without using a flash. If anyone has any technical advice to share, it would be greatly appreciated. I admit that I need to put some more time into learning to use my camera properly and am planning to do so in the immediate future. Currently using an Olympus E-500 w/ the two kit lenses that came with it (a semi wide and semi zoom) and a macro which i purchased separately.
I'll post a photo I took in low light setting with no flash. I have a million of these and they can make a cool light show special effect picture but Im looking to get some shots like the B&W Jazz photo below. Much more clarity. Remember this is a band that has a lot of motion in there stage presence. Thanks in advance! :)
I am a sound man and get to be around a lot of diffrent types of music. I have just got a canon 40D and have started to take pictures of some of the gigs I have worked. As I get more I will share with the group.
hi. is anyone active in this group at this time? i really wanna know if there's a way that i can get good pics of live night band gigs, such as the ones above, without using any advance lens? i have only my 18-55mm lens with the built-in flash. my favorite band is coming to town and i want to prepare ahead of time.. practice shooting good photos before they come over. :) i just really couldn't get the right settings. there's always the movement blur!
