Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band returned to the Santa Barbara Bowl again this year, and just like last year, I had to leave early to shoot the first night of the New Noise Festival. This year, the shooting conditions were much more restrictive and challenging that last. I got to shoot the first three songs from the soundboard, which was busy with lots of people and equipment. The duration was acceptable, but Mr. Buffett was mostly blocked by his mic stand, or he was turned without facing me. The lighting wasn't terribly dull but it was oddly difficult to shoot under.
Anyway, you can see the images on sbbowl.com/photos.
