This was a great show at Trak Live Lounge Bar in Toorak.
I took a travel photographer friend along, (who has never shot a Band before), and gave him the Sony Alpha-55 to shoot with.
We had all areas access, including the VIP Bar, and it was a great venue with superb stage lighting.

Sony Alpha A-55 Camera
Tamron 24-70mm F2.8
This shoot was done at ISO 1000 on the A-77, using the 17-50mm F2.8 lens with a shutter speed of 1/100 to 1/125.
We probably could have gone down to ISO 800 or lower for some of the shots, but chose to use ISO 1000 for the whole shoot.
The A-55 was set to SCN Sports Mode, and so all shots on this camera were done in auto mode.
The A-77 produced better shots than the A-55; however we got some good close ups on the A-55 using the 24-70mm F2.8 lens, and we were able to make use of these in the final album.
The lighting was so good that there was minimal photoshopping required of the images from both cameras.
We would love to shoot at the Trak Lounge again, it is a great venue, with vgood lighting and is very professionally managed.
