Re: gig photography

Depends purely on the lighting! I do a fair bit of gig photography - if it's an outdoor stage, lighting should be relatively easy to manage. By the time they're on stage, it isn't going to be totally dark.

Set the camera to Shutter Priority and shoot at 1/125th minimum, ideally 1/160th. The camera will choose the best Aperture setting for the correct exposure. Use spot metering and start the ISO at around 400. Up the ISO to maintain exposure. If you drop too low a shutter speed, you'll get motion blur. (Hence why Aperture Priority isn't the way to go...you maintain a wide aperture but if the light dropped, the camera would select a slower shutter speed.)

Are you shooting from the pit?

Re: gig photography

Just a cautionary note if you are attending as an unofficial photographer:

Big artists have roadies that sometimes keep an eye on amateurs, and may ask you to leave your kit at the gate. Not sure about Blondie but it can happen.

I know this is another genre but recently an artist stormed out after seeing an iPhone in use ... BBC.

Check the conditions (photography prohibited) before you go, it will save you some embarrassment and possibly risking your kit to the hands of less caring persons.

This is a very good point. Most gigs prohibit photography.

Check the terms and conditions.
