Photo shoots when restricted to the back of a stadium are always hard...... I know someone on here took photos from their seats MUCH closer and they turned out well (absnj i think?), the fans with a good point and shoot can usually fair pretty well against the photographers when they have to shoot from the back. It is fun to take the challange though.

The show was phenomenal.... Everytime I see Winwood I am completely blown away. The guy is pure money.

Those background spotlights must have driven you crazy. Excellent photos...brought me back to the Izod Center where I saw them. You really captured the flavor of the show. Thanks for giving us the link.

Nice moemoe!!! Thanks much for sharing! What type of camera do you use? (btw - agree on Steve ... he's one of the very best )

lolasdeb, I am currently using 2 different camera bodies. But the cameras themselves are not that important to me. IMO, the lenses are by far more important than the camera. With lenses, unfortunately you get what you pay for. Most current cameras OTOH are all decent anymore as long as you know how to properly expose a picture.

Yes, they were driving my camera a little crazy actually. Intense lights like that hitting your camera sensor will make your camera act a little erratic.

I was the one who had it easy, using a good point and shoot with 12X optical zoom... this was my favorite shot:

Yep, good shot.... You were MUCH closer than us.

You need a $4000 lens to get that same shot from back where the photographers were.

This one: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/183202-USA/Canon_2531A002_Telephoto_E F_300mm_f_2_8L.html

I will unfortunately never even get to breath on something like that though.

I don't even bother shooting if I am more than 10 or 12 rows back. I think both Derek McCabe and Fujirich must have cameras with similar lenses... they have posted some stunning photos, even in horrible lighting. Even from up front, without decent lighting, my pictures suck.
