Hi - I am new to the forum so I am hoping this is the right place to post this question.
I am filming an indoor concert for the first time and wonder if anyone has any tips regarding exposure? I appreciate that every venue will be different so there cannot be any hard and fast answers, but any tips, rules of thumb would be useful.
For example, maybe the "spotlight" setting commonly available on cameras would do it (though I have my doubts). Or should I set the cameras to an auto setting but with a minus compensation. Or perhaps it is best to go with a manual setting with shutter around 1/50th and then set aperture? Anything below 1/50th is going to be too slow so some gain boost may be inevitable but I want to minimise this as much as possible to avoid adding excessive noise.
Audio capture should be fine as the sound desk has agreed to provide a full mix and I am going to have one static camera running at the back to give me a wide option, but any other tips you can give would also be appreciated.
So thanks in advance for any tips you can give on this.
