Settings to use shooting outdoors festival
I'm going to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass today, probably tomorrow too. I'll be on roller skates with my Pentax K-x DSLR with 32GB card and a terrific Pentax 18-250 multi-range lens and lens shade.
I normally shoot JPG, the full 12 megapixel setting. Yesterday, I had it set to shutter priority at 1/250 seconds, just so I could assure pretty much no blurring, and hope the autofocus would take care of the focus and get pretty good depth of field.
I've never really shot RAW. Should I? Probably I'm not going to edit any of this stuff, but suppose I should get into that. I always (at this festival) get some terrific shots, and obviously they would be even better with some editing, at least cropping. I don't have Photoshop, but do have an old Photoshop Essentials set of disks. Maybe I should invest in Photoshop. What do you think?
What and how would you shoot? What should I shoot? Suggestions?
