I shot the New Found Glory show last night at The Phoenix Concert Theater. I really like NFG so it was a lot of fun to finally get to see them play live. Their new album is really great and they were selling it at the show for $5. How sweet is that?
As usual The Phoenix had crap for lighting and it was all red all the time, but I told myself I would limit the amount of complaining I do about lighting in venues and just try to be a better photographer by overcoming it. Crap lighting, I am above you!
Someone pointed out that they liked when I got all tech and explained my settings for the photos so here goes.. I shot all of these with my 50mm f1.2L at f1.6 and ISO 1250. I havent really ever tried shooting a concert at f1.6 before so that was a fun experience. Surprisingly a lot of the photos are very much in focus which rules.
Now for something completely unrelated, you should go and follow me on Twitter if you know whats good for you. I drop some mad knowledge in 140 characters or less. You will see. http://www.twitter.com/fakejessbaumung.
