More photo advice from Bryan Humphrey:

Shoot as high an ISO as you can.

Don't be a pixel peeper. (meaning don't zoom into a specific part of the picture and examine the merits just on that)

The photo is about the photo, not just the person in it.

The Average person looks at the average photo for no more than 15 seconds.

And Finally:

The Real Exhibitionists are the ones still out after 1 AM

High ISO like 3200? Or when you say high does that actually mean 100 in ISO terms? Is that because you want to shoot with mostly natural light? It seems like it would be a lot grainier than if you would clamp down the iso and use a bounce flash.

The ISO thing is specifically for Dragon*con because of the universally low light conditions. But he was saying that I was too wrapped up in trying to avoid the grain/noise that I was ruining my shots overall. Even with a flash bounce, it sucks for lighting here. I never brought myself to 3200 ISO though. 800 was as high as I could cope with. His camera is better than mine though and the higher ISOs have less grain/noise
