ACL Fest 2014 – Weekend 1

Hey guys!  I spent the weekend among musicians and music fans at weekend 1 of the Austin City Limits music festival.

I shot for the Austin American-Statesman and European Pressphoto Agency and I took very many pictures.  Here’s a collection of some of my favorites:

Whew!  That was a lot of fun, but a lot of work!

For those photo nerds out there, I used two Nikon D700 camera bodies, one with a Tokina 16-28mm f2.8 and one with a Nikon 70-200mm f2.8.  I used a Nikon 50mm f1.8 for portraits, and brought some loose fabric to hang up as a back drop in the media area instead of the surrounding fencing.  I also used a Nikon SB910 speedlight when necessary, though we aren’t allowed to use flashes in photo pits.

I worked on a team of 3-5 people with the Austin American-Statesman staff, who are all incredibly talented!  Click on the links below to see their photos:
