These images are selections from the show gallery; suggest clicking on each of these,
before moving to the other pages of this gallery. My favorite here is the second photo.
Most were shot with available light (less distracting to audience and musicians);
also avoids that "frozen" look. fired the flash all of FIVE times.

Hi Mike, I appreciate your comments. I don't have any image stabilized lenses; just hold my breath and squeeze the shutter release, with my elbows firmly tucked in to my torso, forming a kind of tripod: one nice thing about a DSLR, when looking through the viewfinder, pressing the camera against your face during exposure helps to anchor things a bit. As far as exposure, it's easier when the stage lighting is fairly static (as is the case here).
I have a lot of photos in the live music galleries that weren't taken with a DSLR, in fact, some with an early point-n-shoot 1.3 MP digital camera, that I'm quite fond of. Hope that this comment is useful, and thanks for visiting (and posting your comments).
Hey some great pics of a great band. You're very lucky to have seen them so many times.
I've noticed that you use surprisingly slow shutter speeeds on some shots (and get them sharp!). Do you use an image stabilised lens?
Also you appear to alternate between matrix and spot metering quite a bit. I've been sticking with partial metering (avoiding matrix) with mixed success. Any tips for getting the exposure right much appreciated. It's when I'm doing stuff like photographing bands that I really wish I had a DSLR!
