While soul is not one of my favorite types of music, I was still interested in shooting the artist, Maxwell, at the Santa Barbara Bowl last night. Shy Girls opened the show. It seemed to me that this performance had brought a large number of people from out-of-town, which added to the novelty of the show. I was restricted to shoot from the soundboard. The lighting was a difficult color for capturing pleasing skin-tones, so many of the images clearly worked better as black and whites. I used my 300/f4 and 70-200/2.8 with teleconverters to extend the reach.
