Nike Human Race: Boys Like Girls Concert

I participated in the Nike Human Race in Singapore last weekend. Stayed on for the post race concert - an American rock group , Boys Like Girls.

I love the zoom lens. Zoom in and out quite easily.

No zoom.

Zoom to the vocalist at the center of the stage.

The guitarist suddenly walk to the edge of the stage and started playing there. So I had to zoom out immediately to get his pic.

Do check out my Human Race report in my blog. Thanks.

looks pretty good ...

No EXIF ... a few shots look like they needed a faster shutter ... other than that, nice shots.

Very nice! If you would be so kind as to post the focal length, ISO and metering I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.

Hi Malinda,

I was in the mosh pit when I took the pics - not so convenient to fiddle with the setting, so I just put the setting on auto and shoot away.

Thanks for exif Re: EXIF Re: Nike Human Race: Boys Like Girls Concert

Pleasantly surprised all were on Auto. Very nice. The EV could benefit from lowering a bit. Given your surroundings and getting used to the settings on a new camera its understandable. You did well.

Next concert you can experiment

With the bright stage lights try using Velvia instead of the standard Provia. I shot some flash pics last night with the cam accidentally on Velvia (later switched to Provia). The Velvia shots looked very good. Just a touch more saturated.

Curious to know, did you take advantage of the tilting LCD to shoot over people's heads?

Hi Malinda,

Thanks for your tips. I will experiment in the next concert.

I did use the tilt screen 80% of the time and find it very useful. The screaming teenagers in front of me keep jumping up and down during the performance.

I love my S100FS very much!
