      Concert Photography

      Well its years since I used to be into 35mm photography and have forgot most of it.
      Off to an arena concert soon and as cameras with removable lens arnt allowed can only take my compact.
      The band I'm going to see are renowned for pyrotechnics so lots of bright lights against dark backgrounds.
      Any advice on what settings I should be putting into the compact ?

      No flash and the widest aperture you can get away with Reverend & The Makers October 2006 - a set on Flickr

      Thanks John, nice pics there, unfortunately I wont be as close.
      I've had a play around with the camera and the only options I have adjustment with are ISO and EV.
      I dont really want to go too high with the ISO as I notice that makes the picture grainy, I guess increasing the EV will have the same effect as increasing the aperture ?
