Hello! Finally back in Baltimore after a long week in Manchester and Nashville, Tennessee. I attended Bonnaroo music festival for four days and it was exhausting but completely worth it. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Bonnaroo is just like a modern day Woodstock. You listen to music with strangers who become friends, you camp on top of other tents and you don’t shower. I wasn’t sure if I was just really tan or really dirty by the end. My highlight was seeing Paul McCartney, THE Paul McCartney. He performed Hey Jude and when I heard it I burst into tears. Something so heartbreaking about watching the last Beatle (come on, no one cares what Ringo is up to these days) sing his heart out all alone.
That brings me to now. I’m back in Baltimore for three days until I’m off again for another music festival, this time in Dover, DE called Firefly Music Festival. Same thing on a smaller scale. I’ll be reporting and photographing this one for The Baltimore Sun’s blog The Darkroom, so keep a look out next week! Headliners are Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and MGMT. All festival photos will be up around then on here as well. It’s my first huge assignment so I’m pretty excited. 🙂
In my in-betweens I had a shoot with Ashley today which come out pretty lovely! I used Fuji Superia 400 this time and the colors definitely popped a lot more than Kodak Portra’s subtle tones.
