Went with a different lens this time, much faster and better suited to the task than the kit lens I used at The Skelling. I'm still learning how to deal with the weird light conditions of clubs though; there was nice warm yellow light in places but a harsh green on stage left and overpowering red at stage right. Also, as we all know, the LCD on a digital camera provides terrible feedback on whether an image is focused well, and it turned out most of these weren't.

Reviewing the data for the shots, I can see I was relying far too much on the automatic mode of the camera. For nearly all pictures it shot wide open (f/1.4), which is good. The bad is that it chose shutter speeds four or five times slower than the 1/48th of a second recommended minimum exposure time to avoid hand shake. That combined with my own sense that I wasn't concentrating deeply enough on stillness spelled failure.

Looks like I'm going manual. I'll keep trying at future shows. Out of hundreds of pictures I'm bound to get at least a couple of good ones...
