Hi all! I was searching for a thread about nightclub photos but couldn't find one. And as they are (usually) about people I then created this one right here. If it's the wrong sub-forum or there already is one, please notify So in this thread you can post your nightclub or nightclub-related photos but also ask and give advice about it and so on! I have to admit that I will mostly be on the receiving end of the advices but I'm hoping there are members with more experience on nightclub photography on these forums. This weekend I will be taking some photos for a friend/colleague who is organizing a dance festival. It's a kizomba/zouk/bachata festival so the athmosphere will be very sensual (read: dark!). I was there yesterday and I will be there on Sunday. The problem I noticed very early is that there is so little light compared to "normal" nightclub parties! Of course, I could have set up my flash but as the party is supposed to be so sensual I thought that flash would be kind of fighting against it. Both during the party but also in the pictures (I'm not that good with a flash). So, I ended up trying to keep manual focus in near-black conditions and wait for the running nightclub lights to pop on the dancers or towards the camera, whichever I was going for at the time. Here are four of the 7-10 pictures from last night that worked for me. Please give feedback and advice if you have some ideas how to work even better in these conditions! Today I will be taking photos of a salsa big band night that I have been kind of organizing. There will at least be stage lights so taking photos of the bands should be pretty straightforward! My equipment for this weekend: Olympus E-PL3, O25/1.8 and O45/1.8. How I wished to have a camera with the new 16mp sensor last night! My ISO had to be around 1600-2000 all the time even with the f/1.8 on the lenses and the shutter speed just fast enough to freeze some movement (30-50). Luckily some smoothing worked OK on this kind of pictures so I could get rid of some if the noise.

Am I attaching the images OK? Should I have used some different way or a different size for the flickr thumbnails?
