I'm a live music photographer, shooting stills and video for bands and promotors in and around Edinburgh, Scotland.

And I hate having my own photo taken, hence the pic.

comment Formula 1 shooting (Hockenheim, Budapest)
It's unusual to get a media permit for any event without being able to demonstrate that a significant number of people will be looking at your photos (e.g. a newspaper commission or a popular blog).

comment What DX Nikon lenses should I look at for concert/club photography?
You're going to be /really/ close up to get a good shot of a DJ with a fisheye. Even if you've been invited by the DJ to take shots for his promo he's going to get fed up with you pretty fast. I wouldn't dare get that close more than once or twice per set. You can get really cool environmental shots when you're there though. I just think you'd get more use out of a more general purpose lens.

comment How do lens prices compare for Nikon and Canon?
It's worth considering a Nikon D90 (or D7000 if you can afford it) instead of the D5100 so that you have an in-body focus motor. You'll save money the first or maybe second time you buy an AF lens instead of the AF-S version. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the AF lenses.

revised How can I use Canon Photo Print Pro with 64-bit Photoshop CS5?
Clarify what you need to "Get Info" about (didn't mention selecting the Photoshop app originally).

comment What should I do about Nikon D90 intermittent shutter release failure?
Whatever you do don't open it yourself, unless this sort of thing looks like fun: ifixit.com/Teardown/Nikon-D5100-Teardown/5271/1

comment Is it safe from a privacy and security point of view to display identifiable EXIF data on a public web site?
It can be a bit of a security issue if your photos contain the GPS co-ordinates of the studio with all your kit in it or your home address.

comment What tool can visualize metadata from many photos on a Mac?
It used to. I can't find any trace of it on the site now - it's possibly not being sold any more. It's still on MacUpdate: macupdate.com/app/mac/36133/aperture-inspector , but if it isn't being supported it's probably not worth it.
