Year 2009 in Concerts

2009 was my first year in photography with a DSLR. It’s been a great learning experience for me with Nikon D80 (even though Ken Rockwell says the model is way-outdated). Here’s a collection of some of my favourite photos from various concerts throughout 2009. Shot with 18-135mm f/3.5-4.5 kit lens (phew) and 35mm f/2.8 lens (a second hand all-manual lens, which was battered and abused by its previous user) without any external flash.

Please be nice and leave a comment 🙂 and don’t forget to check out all the concert pics on ktmROCKS’ flickr profile.

  1. Nice pics bro..I liked the pics with Antim Grahan guitarist and the Stairs of Cirith bassist pic. esp the latter… excellent lighting. I’td have been a top photo with the right crop/composition.! and better resolution. Another pic tht cudve been great is one with the drummer’s silhouette. Do you shoot in RAW ?

    • Sameer
      Thanks for the comment. It’s a shame that i have never tried shooting in RAW yet but i’m gonna do it once i install Lightroom. I’m still using Photoshop 7 and CS 1.

    • and yeah, the pic you were talking about ( i guess #13) was taken using 18-135mm lens, which is not at all an appropriate lens for indoor concert environment, especially when it’s zoomed, it’s opening goes down towards f/4.5. hence, the “bad” resolution.

  2. aweomeness nai par garnu vo ni ta brother…these are great…concerts haruma malai pani bolaunu na…..I’d love to shoot some rocking peope…:)

  3. harip pic bro esp of e.qual and that fucked off expression was damn cool…..anywaz so damn kwl pic…..metalz rulz..\m/

  4. BABAAL pics

    but i esp liked anil dais from GBOB and ugrakarma vocalist with tamishra

    PS: did u people notice that the christas core pics are mostly reddened, santa color? hahaha

    • I guess, Lost Oblivion performed just once on 2009 and I hardly had any good pictures of them. Plus the fact that the members of LO and Vhumi formed a new project – E.Quals, which played in the most of the concerts.
