On April 25th, 2011, I had the opportunity to shoot Robert Plant and the Band of Joy at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Though I've seen Mr. Plant three times before (billed as just Robert Plant), this was the first time I was able to photograph him.
I had to shoot from the soundboard, but I rented a 600/f4 lens. That beast, coupled with my 1.4x teleconverter, got me up nice and close.
The show was congruent with Plant's modern trend of fusing country and rock. One highlight for me was a reggae-sounding version of Black Dog, slowed down and strummed out.
