Years and years ago, I was in the music biz (DJ, record store manager, booking agent, band manager). Then I realized that I needed to earn a living.

Now that I've picked up the camera, I'd love to start shooting bands and musical artists in addition to the glamour and figure work. I actually have the opportunity to shoot an up and comer (www.tutupi.com) and need some advice.

My low-light gear is limited -- I'll be shooting with my 28-105 f4-5.6 using Fujipress 1600 for my first shoot (bringing along a monopod for a little extra assistance). So, how you tink? With that set-up (and a flash), you think I can come up with a few good images?

You didn't specify: are you shooting a live performance? If so, you should try to get your hands on some faster glass. Typically, "good" club lightiing will put you around 1/60 at f2.8 with 1600, and many clubs are darker than that. If you're flash is anything more than a very weak fill, the photos won't look good.

Thanks Mike...
Yours is advice I wish I could follow; unfortunately, I can't afford that type of glass right now.

I ended up shooting at f4 (as open as I could get) at 1/15 with my flash on slow synch. I didn't get quite the quality you showed in your example, but I was pretty happy with the results of my first shoot under those conditions. And the band was happy, too. They're now using about 10 of my shots on their web site, tutupi.com.

.....using FujiPress 800 (CZ800) and push process it one stop? I've found that it yields much better results than the 1600 at speed.

Regarding the (good) suggestion to use faster glass....perhaps you could borrow/rent?

I once shot a CD cover using only a Canon 35mm with a 28-105 f/3.5-5.6 standard zoom and a bit of bounce-board outdoors (the whole shoot took not more than 15 minutes). Then again, I saw a copy in a Virgin Megastore in Manhatten with my credit printed on the back, and I was red-faced in embarrassment...

I stopped shooting shows with my zoom a long time ago. I've been keeping an eye out for a good used 100mm f2.8 macro, which I think would be a solid, portable lens to use; but until I find one, I've been using my trusty old 50mm f1.7. You have to get in close sometimes, but for mood shots like this one of Marshall Tucker Band from their '98 tour, it can do a good job. This was probably shot wide open on 800 film.
