Pickathon 2013 is just a few days away. I was fortunate to be able to walk around and take some pictures during setup last week.
I’m really looking forward to photography work at Pickathon this year, especially now with the phenomenal 75mm f1.8 which is just about the best concert lens I’ve ever used. It wasn’t available last August, though the 45mm 1.8 is sublime and I shot extensively with it for 2012’s event, recording over 500 images with that lens alone.
My intention this year is to augment the photography and video with artist interviews and audio recording of (at least snippets) of the shows for field podcasts. I don’t know if I can get permission/accredited, but I’m trying. Admittedly, I have stepped away from the microphone for a little while, but I don’t think the rust is too thick and I know I will do a good job.
