Very good, is that the Nikkor 28~70? I'm quite happy with the cheaper Tammy.

I shot quite a lot of concerts over the years, both video and stills, what IS0 did you choose?

You've managed to keep the proverbial mic up the nose shots at bay, well done!

Cheers

Thanks Sergeg, yup it's the Nikkor 24-70 (I assume the 28 was a typo).

I kept my ISO around 2000 - 3200.

I tried my darndest to wait for the lead singer/guitarist to step away from the mic or at least pull his head back. I want to keep the mic shadows as minimal as possible as well as keeping it from blocking his face
