The subject is really not that easy after trying out different lens, flash or no flash. I am only happy with this one. No flash with FA50mm1.4. Toronto Harbourfront Centre Mexican Fest

You have reason to be veryhappy with this one. I think the evident motion of the violin bow is a nice touch to the still figure of the violinist. Well done!

Daniel,

Concert photography is something I have not tried, but I see no reason to complain about the one you posted. I can see that the combination of motion, low light, and distance would make it a particularly challenging subgenre of photography. Good pic,

Tim

I already posted some of these in earlier threads, but here they are again:

Some taken with the kit lens, some with a MF Tokina SZ-X 70-210mm

I have to say that I am doing that the regular way that is try to get the white balance sort of. In fact what you have portrayed is the right color actually there. Should we improve and get the yellowish out or stick with what we see with our own eyes? Yours is probably the better approach.

Great pics TDN. My low-light concert pics didn't turn out anywhere near as good as these.

Hehe, don't worry, these are selections out of about 100 shots. Without a fast lens, it really depends on luck.

+I had an advantage here. I worked (if you can call that "work") in a project to cover this festival with other young "photographers/filmmakers/journalists". SO basicly I had a backstage-pass I could go frontstage with as an "official" press photographer

@daniel: Yeah I left the WB deliberatly on these. I like them this way because it portraits the "mood" I get at these concerts better for me...

What's interesting is that both Daniel and Tom took great pictures that are so different. Both fit the mood and subject, showing how different things can be, depending on what's there. I likeboth of them.
