wow, how do you get good shots like this? is it the shutter speed?
everytime I take live pics, they turn out bad

It's a combination of the shutter speed, the apeture, and composition in general. I had to take a few experimental shots while the hosts were starting the show in order to figure out where everything needed to be.

Also, it depends on what camera and lens you're using. You're not going to get really good results with your average consumer camera. I used a Canon 300D Ditigal Rebel with a 50mm lens.

I suggest you go to *photo-class if you want to learn more, though feel free to ask me any questions.

ah, thanks.

For those shots, I want to know what the shutter speed you used was. I have a Canon PowerShot Pro 1.
haha, I wouldn't mind if I had cheap-o consumer camera, but yeah, I'll check out *photo-class

Well, I just checked out the specs of you camera.

Personally, I would've shelled out the extra couple hundred for a dRebel kit; why go for a psuedo-slr when you can for the actual thing for a bit more (relatively speaking)? The pro1 seems like a dumbed down version of the rebel stuck with the standard kit lens, which frankly sucks compared to other lenses. Your apeture of 2.4 isn't going to work in a dark concert environment unless the guy's got a spotlight on him or if you've got a flash. Personally, I don't like built-in flashes either, but a pop-up flash is definitely better than one built right next to the lens.

Apeture, shutterspeed, etc are all located below the deviation image to the right in the EXIF info.

My apeture was at 1.4 and my shutter speed ranged from 250-1000 throughout the night at 800 (400 for some of the slower speeds) ISO, depending on which stage lights were on at the time.

Thank you!

There is some control over the pose, in a sense. What you need to do is to keep on eye in the viewfinder and keep the other eye on the general scene. Listen to the music for any buildup and read the musician's body language to predict when someone's going to do something wild. If you see something coming, you gotta dive into place, adjust your shutterspeed, and click away.

yeah i know... in a weird kind of way, that's what i meant to say with "timing" but then i went ahead and ruined my point by saying silly things <_<

Didn't photocopy too well. Some of it's illegible.
