I agree that if you are attempting to get any decent images with your camera, you might as well forget about really enjoying the music.pakodominguez wrote:When I go to an event, lets say, a concert or so, I don't usually take pictures. And, if i finally do it, it will be by the end. Because I don't enjoy the event through the camera. I do work through the camera, it is a filter, or a shield, that protect me from the whole experience -but if I'm at a concert of an artist I really like, i don't want to be "protected, I want the full experience.
Since photography is just a hobby for me, I use a camera at a concert on very rare occasions - most of which are for personal reasons such as the images below.
Here are two images that I shot indoors a couple of months ago without flash, using my A700 and my old Minolta 75-300mm lens. The Symphonic Strings of my older granddaughter's school in Arizona came to California for a music festival, so I put my NEX-6 on a tripod to get a video of their performance, and shot hand-held stills with my A700. The first image was taken with the lens at 300mm, and the second with the lens at 75mm.
