First nightclub photography, so frustrated. I need your help!
Feb 19, 2011

For the first time, I took pictures in nightclub with E-5 & Panaleica 25mm/1.4&Metz 48af1 with RC mode.

I thought I'm well prepared and my equipments are appropriate for nightclub photos. But my expectation went beyond in a bad way.

1. Wrong choice of lens: I asked few weeks ago if PL25mm is good lens for nightclub photo and some replied it is good..But for me, I was supposed to bring zuiko 12-60mm. 25mm is sometimes useless in crowded club.

2. Real problem is autofocus in a low light: It took more than 5 second to focus people in the club. E-5 couldn't even focus several times in the club. "I was so upset and didn't know how to do it." Results were good but it was hard to make photos because of AF. "HOW CAN I DO????"

Have a great weekend,
Antonio
