This year was a little complicated for me during the New Noise Music Festival and Conference. Not only had I recently recovered from back surgery, but there were also three shows at the Santa Barbara Bowl that overlapped with the festival. Of the four performances that I did shoot, however, I really enjoyed myself.
The lighting in the small clubs is normally very dim and challenging. Because of this most of the images need to be converted to black and white in order to preserve the tonality.
