you could have lowered the ISO (by a bit) and then used a slower shutter speed since 1/8000 is more than quick enough to freeze this kind of action
Thanks for the tip! I wasnt sure what shutter speed was best, all I knew was movng target + fast shutter speed (should) = decent shot.
I will try what you suggested next time I go to a gig in afew weeks. Only problem with experimenting is that you can only photograph for 3 songs of each band, so if you spend that time playing around with settings rather than shooting you could well end up with no useable photos at all haha
but I will definatley lower the shutter speed next time.
and Bob, I tried google to see if there was anything to resize with BBcode and came across this:
