I thought we could get a Concert Photography thread going like we had on the former NR forum.
I just read a book by Alan Hess called All Access and I highly recommend it for those looking into shooting concerts.
What I'm about to ask and why I didn't try it out is because when shooting concerts we don't have time to experiment too much, with only the first two songs to shoot in.
He states in his book he shoots indoor concerts at 1/160 @ ISO 1600. Have any of you shot at this low of speed shooting indoor concerts?
Last Friday I was scared to shoot that low of speed so I shot at 1/250 on AutoIso instead of my normal 1/500 and was blown away by the extreme quality difference but it came at a cost of blurring, my ISO was running between 200 - 800. So I'm thinking the ISO 1600 would of froze the shots much better or it's equivalent at 1/250. Am I right or am I looking at this wrong?
