Paradise taping and Photography questions...
« on: August 14, 2003, 09:31:20 AM »
Hi All,

Im going to tape The Polyphonic Spree tonight at the Paradise in Boston. what is a better taping situation, on the floor stuck to "the pole" or using a boom mic stand on the Balcony? I kinda like being up as it is less crowded and I might have access to the board for a UA-5 matrix.

As for photography I forget what ISO should you be in for taking pics in a dark room with a lit stage (read: paradise).
the show is over go home please.

Is this a digital camera?  ISO speed is related to the film, or possibly in your case a setting on the digital camera (since it's sans film ;D).

800 ISO speed film or faster is best. Couple that with a lens capable of a constant aperture of f2.8 or lower and you should get decent results.

Cool!  Well if you can set the ISO speed, set it for 800 or 1000, if it's too "grainy" take it down some.  I think you should be able to set your aperature too, if so the smallest number you can get is the best (most wide open so more light comes in).

Try and not use the flash, past the fact it probably disrupts the band a little, I think shots with the flash look unnatural.

Example, two different photographers from same night, on my site.

With flash


Without flash

[edit] didn't realize you shot digital ignore this
flash is ugly at concerts if you can avoid it, do!  you need a lense with a large apeture... if you cant get that compensate with high speed film.  because i can't afford a better lense i shoot iso3200 black and white and 1600 color (sometimes i have to push the 16oo more though) ...i would suggest a monopod too if you need even more stability.  grain does become an issue, but usually i don't print a 3200 shot more than 8x10 i've never really had out of control grain from concert shots though
(word of advice store your film properly and don't buy expired film even it's it only a short short period of time and you should be good to go)
