I took photos following my new direction of band photos, only this time found a local venue that allowed use of flash. These photos were a lot more successful than my previous photos because using the flash allowed me to use a faster shutter speed, and a lower ISO, reducing noise and grain in my photos and making them perfectly exposed and not dark as my previous photos have been. I also think these photos are successful because they accurately show the atmosphere of the gig as the crowd or fans would see it.
