Rock Show

Photo of rock band Oedipus i was recently hired to shoot.  The show had only LED lighting for color fx and no follow-spot.  There wasnt a lot of light.  After a test I ended up at ISO 1600, f(wide open) and whatever shutter speed those variables dictated.  Even this was not always not enough to stop action.  However the motion blur I got in many cases was the best part of the shot.  The lens, by the way, was a Canon EFS 17-85mm.  I turned on the flash on only a couple occasions because in my opinion it ruins the effect of a rock show.  Band website is  My own photog site is
