January 8, 2009 – Here's one shot from Lil Wayne's performance tonight at the Chaifetz Arena – my first gig of the new year.
This was a soundboard shoot in essence. I say in essence, because I actually shot just in front of the soundboard, which did help a good deal in closing the gap between the distant stage and my 200-400mm f/4.
I should add that there is absolutely zero post processing for this image other than downsizing and sharpening at web resolution. The vignetting on the purple wash is 100% as shot.
I expect to have the full set from Lil Wayne's set soon, as well as images from opening acts T-Pain, Keyshia Cole, Gym Class Heroes, and Keri Hilson.
Here's to the start of what I hope will be a great year!
