Some days ago I went to a concert and there I tried to do some concert photography for the first time. I'll post some pictures in this thread, can you give me pointers on what's wrong with them and what I can do to improve?

Btw they're really noisy and not that sharp since I decided to go with one of my manual lense (I'm stupid, I know), which was a pretty slow one, so I had to shoot completely open and with crazy high ISO. Also, manual focus.

Probably the best ones in your entire set.

General composition could be improved upon, though what's really holding you back is that about half of these images are out of focus and/or are affected greatly by motion blur due to the speed of the shutter. If you're shooting as wide open as possible along with a slower shutter speed, this could cause your photos to come out blurry around parts of your subject that tend to move a bit more.

I see what you are going for, though in the future if you shoot another gig and you have a ton of shots that aren't as pleasing as your want them to be you can opt for a speedlight and all you would have to do is set flash composition to what looks the best (but only if you're allowed to use one).

Sometimes you just have to spray & pray with burst, and catch a well lit shot that'll go off quick.

Bringing the right lens helps too! :)

Thanks for the input.

Anyway yeah, it was a dumb decision to use a lens that slow, but that's unfortunately the only one I have in that focal range, if I wanted a better one I would have needed to borrow it from a friend (in hindsight, I should have done just that).
As for flash, that was a no-no from the organizers (some guy tried to do it anyway and the singer actually stopped singing to tell him to stop that). It was really difficult to get some proper light (they filled the place with smoke as well, had to delete 2/3 of the pictures because of that).

As for composition, could you tell me where things are off?
>>
>>2697834
Nice pic!
Anyway, I wish I could have done that, I destroyed my two "big" memory cards a couple days before the show, so I was left with a 1gb and a 2gb ones, and had to try to waste as few shots as possible.
>>
I don't really wanna comment on every single one because you posted 21 photos but, I'm not 100% sure what's going on here. there's a couple that are pretty good like >>2697690 and >>2697694 but almost every single one of these is out of focus.

you're gonna have to invest in some better lenses man. I'm not even gonna tell you to get a better body because I know some people killing it with a 600d. I kinda like your composition to be honest though.

just keep shooting

Plz don't use flash. They are incredibly distracting for everyone at the show.

>>2697686
Don't bother with shots like these. She isn't doing anything interesting.

>>2697683
This is good but it bothers me that the whole guitar isn't in the shot. I know it's difficult but I always try to get the whole thing in frame.

>>2697687
Avoid color on these shots. Better off trying B&W.

>>2697701
Be careful of derpy faces. I try to exclude those.

>>2697676
IDK if you were trying to get the vocalist's head or if he just popped into frame but I'm digging this.

>>2697673
If you could have gotten his hand pointing this would have been better. And better lighting on his face but you can only work with what's given.

Nice

Basically I just crank my ISO up so I can use the fastest shutter speed I can and I shot as wide an aperture as well. Burst/continuous shutter.

It just comes down to the right physical aspects of the subject and/or placement of yourself when you take the shot. There's a great deal of emotion when it comes to making music and artists can really show that when they're really into a specific song, so usually when that happens it is a great time for a photo.
You really have to judge on whether or not the photo is even worth trying to take, because otherwise you may have a ton of pics that make look good technically, but don't tell any sort of story.

Again, a little more last ditch if it is allowed by staff. And if anything, take maybe 1-2 at very long intravels so it's not as annoying. Though like another anon in this thread they are suggesting that OP get a faster lens which in the long run is the best possible choice due to blur.

thanks dog I think it might be my favorite personal photo of the year

everyone is talking about flash i think and i just wrote a long post about it and accidentally deleted it but uh

don't use flash unless the band is chill with it. don't use it the whole set. it can make your photos look really cool or really boring. etc etc etc
