Seasons. Monthly Photo Challenge (April).

It is time for the Monthly Photo Challenge, which is hosted by . The goal of his challenge is to “get you to shoot often and continuously, to build up your portfolio, get some photographic experience and have fun.”

For April, I needed to multitask. I was headed downtown to listen to some music and knew I would not get another chance to go back and take pictures for a few weeks, so I just took some shots while having fun.

This was odd for me as I don’t normally carry my large Nikon around to social events. One, it is just too heavy to want to lug around. Two, I hate to have it at a social event and have to keep up with it. Nonetheless, I broke out of the norm and took some photographs while enjoying some tunes and beers.

I have to admit, I could have done better with the band photos. I was propping my camera up on my water glass as a tripod and bumped my ISO up pretty high. I really just wanted to enjoy the music and did’t want to take five minutes to set up the shot. So, I set up my “tripod,” made some adjustments and took the shot. Then, I promptly stashed my huge camera away.

Looking at them now, I think I could have taken a few more and tried a couple of other settings. Lesson learned, but for now, they are a good starting point.

Anyway,here is what I got…

  1. That river is just awesome. Great shots and it’s nice to see some concert photography too. If you want to experiment with settings for concert photography, I can tell you that I normally set my camera to single point focus when I shoot at concerts (which is not often).
    I did a search for you on duckduckgo: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=single+focus+point+nikon+d300s

    I agree with you that DSLR cameras are often too heavy to carry around. For a while I was dreaming about byuing a fullframe camera, but lately I’ve been thinking about downsizing instead and getting a smaller camera.
