    Friday night we head out to our favorite watering hole to hear our favorite band. We get there at about 10:30 and catch the middle of the third set. I have my camera with me (as always, Panasonic Lumix not the DSLR). I shot a couple pics before the band took a break at 11:45 and hit the bar for a few beers in between sets. They came back on a little after midnight and I take up a position on the left of the stage near the speakers.

    The band was loud and the crowd was thick, and I was really getting into it, banging my head and snapping away the whole time.

    Saturday morning I get up with ringing ears and a bit of a hangover and look at my camera thinking I took about 200 snaps. Wrong. I took 966 shots in about 45 minutes and 3 videos that are over 3 minutes each.

    My wife thinks I have completely lost my mind and cannot understand how I shot a thousand pictures in less than an hour.
    I went through them Sat night and managed to weed out about 700 unusable shots. I have 300 or so ones that I have been processing out.

    I have 70 loaded onto flickr right now and will probably get a few more before I am done.

    So I think that’s pretty good. 900 snaps in a crazy pit yields maybe 100 good shots.

    Don’t forget that you were drunk, so that’s definitely a good keeper ratio for drunktography 😉 Cool stuff, too!

    Count me among the impressed. I just shot a wedding and didn’t have that many shots. An excellent night’s work, and a presumably great show.

    Hmmm… sounds like a theme suggestion to me. 😉

    I really wasn’t too drunk, but shooting in a mosh pit with a p&s, in constantly changing light conditions is very challenging.
