Hi guys, I recently purchased a used Nikon D40x with a Tamron 28-80mm, f/3.5-5.6 Aspherical Lens for $120. I know it's not much but it's my first DSLR so at that price, I couldn't say no! I know it's not much to work with but it's worth a shot. Anyways, I am an avid concert goer and decided to see if I could do some shots with a local band. I sent them an email explaining that I would need a media pass in order to "entertain my hobby of photography' using my new camera and that I wouldn't be using the photos for profit. They replied very promptly and agreed to go ahead and give me a pass to get the camera into the venue. Now, I did a search on the forums and found a topic regarding this same thing and attached was a link to a couple sites. In addition to that, I did my own google search on concert photography. The problem is, a few of them suggest opposing ideas. One such thing is what mode to shoot it in. One site says shutter priority, another aperture priority, another manual mode, and yet another says program mode. Now, I'm far from camera savvy so my question is, what would the lovely MR folks suggest I try? I've looked at some videos of the band's live performances and it doesn't look like they use very much intense lighting, but of course, it changes from concert to concert. The venue that they will be playing at is small, and from past experience, there really won't be a "photo pit" so that may present a problem as well. Any other tips would be GREALY appreciated! Thanks in advance!
