Robert Plant at SB Bowl 2015

Robert Plant returned to the Santa Barbara Bowl with his most recent backup band, The Sensational Space Shifters. This is the same band he toured with a couple years ago, and they are superb, nailing the classic Led Zeppelin tunes to a tee. Last time they were here, I was able to shoot from the ADA section, but this time, I was stuck at the soundboard. I did get three full songs and was able to get some decent images. The lighting wasn't fantastic, as far as photography goes, but I still got some good stuff. I had to convert some of them to black & white to bring back detail that was lost by single-color floods, like the bright reds they used.

J.D. McPherson opnened the show, and I got to shoot them from in the photo pit.
