Ole purple fingers. Like always I love these band shots. Question - was the stage lighting good enough (often a bit dark on stages) or did you pop a flash (doesn't look like it and that is why I wonder)
Mal: I have used flash a few times louis but the constant changing light generally adds to the confussion, all the best. mal
Hey Mal, you are haveing a good time in Tokyo!
Mal: thank you Eni, I did not want to leave, I would live there, if I could. mal

ur concert stuff is very good, did u have front row seats or something?
Mal: Thanks Ade, these guys are my mates so I get a AAA pass. mal
you caught a nice expression my friend ! did you tour with them? I can imagine you with a triangle smile
Mal: my triangle was confiscated at boarder control, so I could not play, but I waved my hands in the air very loudly!! wink mal
Ah a bit of a rocker then. One of the best band shots ( lighted ) that I've seen here on the 'chance.

Mal: high praise indeed and thank you J. mal

Another nice capture.

Did you intend to stop leaving your url in comments? I have to keep finding your bookmark rather than just clicking on your name. Thought I'd mention it in case it's accidental
Mal: Thank you Simon, no I just turn off the return link to you!! In case you come and slag me off!! lol, mal

Hey, I recognise him .. don't I? If so, that's a first for me!

Really super picture Mal, love the movement.
Mal: Thanx El, he has been posted before. all the best. mal
Nice concert shot - the backlight and motion are great. Who is this band?
Mal: Thank you Jason, the band are Farrah all the best. mal
Oh, Mal, you're taking me back to halcyon days with a pastel green Gretsch round my neck, very silly tartan flairs, lots of nice wee lassies down the front of stage, us singing covers of Kinks numbers in packed Edinburgh clubs in 19..!! grin
Mal: Did you mean 18..!! lol, cheers David. mal

Mal, please please please do me a favour and chase Paolo Nutini down to take some shots of him as: 1. he's got cwap shots on the net, 2. he's adorable and would look easy on the eyes of shutterchancers, 3. only you could do it!
thanks on advance! wink
Mal: Sinem, I feel quite a numpty because, I had not heard of Paolo! However, after your comment, I found his web site and am most impressed with his music! (very much to my liking) Not only that but he was born about 1 mile from my birth place! I can see the eye candy potential for the ladies to but I recon that his record label will bar me! and besides, his tour is fully sold out! So, if you have the contacts, lets get down there and snap away!! lol mal
mal, there you are. I thought as much, a Don of photography. Like the short, cool focus on his facial expression, you must have been upfront at the concert.
Mal: Thank you! I'm no Don, I'm just a dude who likes pics!

These guys are friends so I get the all areas pass.

Cheers. mal
what a great expression!
Mal: He does look rather strained! Cheers master, me

well composed, but I wish his right hand was less blurred.
Mal: Thanks Dee, I did struggle with a couple of options on this shot and that was one of the issues. mal

The worst thing is that you have about 79.9 GB left of shots that we can all be envious of until we are grey. Nice microphone placement and great shot mal.
Funny expression of the artist : Well done !
Hey Mal! I was wondering if you had any advice for shooting concerts??
The low light and constant movement make it just so difficult! An expensive lens with huge aperture perhaps? lol
