Hello fellow photographers!

I looking to go down the route of nightclub photography and theres a local event which im gunna practice and have my first attempt. I no its darker than most nightclub environments so not sure what equipment to buy. As you can see i dont have too many lenses :oops: or a flash.

What should i spend my cash on?

Cheers

I think a flash would be your direct option, and maybe a 35 F/1.8. It all depends on your style though: available light, or flash.

Well ive been looking at the 50mm f1.8 purly because its so cheap but im not sure if it will be good enuff? Eventuly i want to get a tokina 11-16 so would i be better getting a sb-600 and using my kit lens for the time being?

I think a 50 mm is too long for in clubs, and the 35 is only 60 euros more expensive over here.

I don't know if flash would be a good idea for that setting. I have the impression it will kill the ambiance and mood of the lights on scene.

I've never shot inside a nightclub, but I guess your best chances are to get a really fast lens and a camera with good high-ISO performance...
