My dad has loads of friends who are musicians. So when we last visited him, and went out to see some of his friends play in the evening, it seemed like a good time to experiment with our new camera. It is, after all, supposed to perform better in low light levels, compared to the old one. Indeed, trying to take photos without flash, the 'auto' settings were going all the way to ISO 3200!
I'm pretty sure that if I'm going to get anywhere with this, I really do need to master all the manual settings - but at least with digital, it doesn't cost anything to experiment.
I wouldn't say that I got any earth-shatteringly brilliant photos, but it was fun to experiment, and certainly something I'll try again some time.
If anyone reading has more experience of this kind of thing, I really would love to hear your tips and tricks.
