    Walkíria Correia - Glad you like the cheat cards! I looked up your order and it looks like you purchased the set for the 18-55mm lens. That particular lens doesn't perform well in low light. The 35mm or 50mm f/1.8G lens are much better suited for low light concerts. In fact, if you look at the cheat cards for those particular lenses, you'll see I included settings for photographing concerts in low light. All the best!

    Hi Moose! NewB here. Glad to find you. I will be following your videos and getting your cards. Just got a d3200 for Christmas and I love it. Have already been shooting "on-the-side" jobs and my customers love the pics. Want to hone my skills with flash. Got a little Altura flash that I'm reading about on your forums.
