Funkoars @ Summadayze, January ’10

Possibly the most difficult time to shoot a band is at an outdoor festival while the sun is still high enough in the sky to not allow any kind of stage lighting.

Shooting in those conditions while nursing an almighty new years day hangover only makes that task a hundred fold more difficult.

I was extremely sketchy at Summadayze today due to the copious amount of drinking to bring in the new year the night before, but still managed to try some new ideas with the Funkoars.

Shooting into direct sun with only one speedlite is always gonna be difficult, but getting close enough to the action with the flash helped get the effect I was hoping for on some of these. I wish I had my second flash with me, as that extra light would certainly have helped!
