Oh right, this is a photography blog...Well everytime we go out there, I bring my camera but usually fail at taking great photos. This time I brought my D50, but I took my kit lens that came with my D300. The lens was probably heavier than the camera! ha ha ha. I tried using Aperture mode then Shutter Mode, but went back to the handy dandy Auto Mode. And I normally try to stay clear from using the flash, but during the concert it actually helped even though we were pretty far back from the stage. I did a little cropping and some slight color correction in Paint Shop Pro X2.
Side note, I always thought that RAW was the best way (and I still use it all the time), but I couldn't figure out why my photos were always so drab and flat. I thought I was doing something wrong until I read an article letting me know that when you shoot in RAW, you NEED to edit--and all this time I just thought the pictures were supposed to be awesome straight out of the camera. I wish I could find the article I read, but I can't.
