Courtesy of Bonnaroo.com and mayonaise for telling me to look.
Getting to touch Matt and sing with him is only rivaled by macca pit. That's my forehead under that guys hand.
This is awesome! I was attached to the rail in GA for their show and unfortunately Matt didn't come over to the side I was on during this, but he did run past me when he went back onstage and just that was amazing. If I had been able to sing w/ him I probably would have just passed out!

Pondo with On and on frontman (& Pondo Army member) Nate Eiesland
The awesome sister act Von Grey Won a bet that I could get Danielle to wear a beach ball on her head! I wish all media press was this dang cool. The tat translates to "F#cking Awesome" Love that they have this on the farm Attack of the Cloneys! When they switched over to Brad Pitt no less.
Will post more when I get some time to look at them...

This was my first Bonnaroo. I identified with the guy who posted earlier about it taking 10 years to get there. My friend, Chris, has never been to anything like this before. We had a blast. It was like heaven on Earth. I want to live there forever.
Our row in Pod 8 was marked with a Hodor flag. How can that be wrong?
We were very excited!
Bonnaroo Cinema. We saw the Michael Cera movie Crystal Fairy & the Magic Cactus & 2012.
Random strangers at Dwight Yoakum who asked me to take a picture of them. I hope they see this. It's a good picture.
Here is a link to my friend's video of the China lantern at Tom Petty. We were trying to figure out if it was the same one from the picture posted above. I think it is.
Here is a link to my videos of Paul McCartney doing Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da and Live & Let Die. (I wanted to record a few seconds for my mom to see but then ended up not being able to bring myself to push stop)

These are some fantastic shots guys! Here's a few highlights I captured. Sadly my camera crapped out during Bjork and I didn't bring a back up battery what was I thinking?!?! The enormous crowd that began to gather before the gates opened Thursday.
The ubiquitous black helicopters that had "Pilot can at the queer of god" by the Flaming Lips stuck in my head all weekend.
Some are as-shot, but some have a little post editing for sure. Pretty much all my daytime shots are natural (unless I wanted a drastic HDR look), with night shots being the ones that are more likely to be fixed a little bit (mostly to eliminate graininess).
I'm not that big of a post-editor, outside of the basic minor fixes (brightness/vibrance/sharpness), mainly because I am not that good at it, lol. I've yet to attempt using layers, despite that kind of being the standard way of editing.
Just curious what you did to the Macca picture and the picture of the food vendors at night to make the colors pop. onion
when I do night photos, to get those popping colors, it is mainly upping the vibrance in photoshop. this is from last year. a good example of it. I already trashed my Nef files this year since I was happy with my results and wanted to save space. Look at the blues and yellows especially on the floor of the fountain. thats where they seem to show up for me. Sadly, I didnt get a photo like this of the fountain this year. I always had my 70-300 lens on so I had to stand WAY WAY BACK. Edited and sharpened. I like a bit overly crisp image.
this is straight from teh RAW file. ONLY brightened a bit in RAW processing and then cropped
My very first Bonnaroo, and it was a blast! Definitely will not be my last. I have never been so happy in my entire life. I cried tears during Paul McCartney, Bjork, and David Byrne & St. Vincent's sets just because it was so overwhelming and unreal that I was really at Bonnaroo, and these people were seriously in front of me. Gosh!
Here's some of my favorites:
^ if anyone knows these girls, help me find them! Total missed connection
