I must say Styx had their act together, and Tesla were together in their act. Both bands executed superb performances. A great show. Joan Jett & The Blackhearts were there too, but unfortunately Joan wasn’t up for pictures. I guesstimated my exposure setting at a shutter speed of 320, F 2.8 with an ISO of 800 as I was intuiting the sunlight mixed with spots for Tesla, and just generally a lot of light for Styx. Generally I just warmed things up a bit and sharpened them in
Lightroom. Sometime I bring the shadows up a bit to get more color is the smoke…why not?
My lenses for Tesla were the 14mm, 16-35mm and the 24-70 as I find the openers are usually forced to play a little more downstage to leave room for the equipment upstage for the headliners.
For Styx, I switched things up with 70-200mm, then the 24-70mm and 16-35. Unfortunately I second guessed myself a little too radically for Tesla and was too far from center and missed some of the action there….well…I don’t want to be a hog you know. Gotta leave something behind FOR NEXT TIME!
