French Cultures Festival Kickoff Concert 2018

On Friday March 9th, 2018 I shot the 2018 French Cultures Festival Kickoff Concert at Houston’s Discovery Green. There were three great bands (The Great Novel from Montreal, Tomar and the FCs from Austin, and Headliners The Blind Suns from Angers, France. They all played on the same accessible and beautifully lit stage with the downtown buildings providing a sometimes dramatic background.

People doing what they love and being oblivious to the camera makes capturing emotions a breeze and never having to pose them. This has given me a desire to shoot more artists/musicians/athletes/performers at work.

If you’re a photographer looking for an easy atmosphere to practice your craft, this is one of the best places to work on your skills. Kudos to Discovery Green for creating such an inviting venue!

 

For the photographers out there, all these were shot on a Fujifilm XT2 and a vintage M42 mount Asahi Pentax SuperTakumar 135mm f2. Manual focusing is not that hard with some practice and the camera’s peaking assistance.
