i have to admit being a bit overwhelmed with the editing of the mass amount of pictures taken, but i'll slug through it.

Anyway, this year (like all of them) was great for moment capturing. Some of you may have concluded i was Dani's picture bitch this year. A lot of my time was spent outside the Polo Fields, driving around with the Friend who is Psychic getting pictures of Carpoolachella winners (she'll be posting those...that was actually pretty fun..people get so excited). Being outside the grounds for the extended period of time gave me a chance to get the entering process from a new point of view. When the chance arose to run into a tent while waiting on stuff, i took it.

Band wise my Day 1 had a little or a lot of DJ Mehdi, Midnight Juggernauts, Adam Freeland, Cut Copy, Vampire Weekend, dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip, The Raconteurs, The Swell Season, Datarock, The Verve, Jack Johnson, The Black Lips and Fatboy Slim. i took a lot of shitty pictures, but got a few decent ones. i have posted enough on buzznet (http://renegademartian-coachella2008day1.buzznet.com/user/photos/) now to begin PART 1:

You can see me and my buddy Matt (the blonde dude with the hat) in both Medhi pictures. Seriously, though, just the fact you can pick me out of a crowd THAT goddamn easily shows how good Michael is at taking photos.

Thanks all. You're getting me motivated to werk faster that i usually do (if i only didn't have them other obligations getting in the way)


you are great!


not buying that one. Got so far to go before coming close to that category and i don't think i have enough time on this plane of existing. Hopefully i will always get a little bit better.


Haha I see Passive in at least one pic


Can't believe i missed that. Passive is the Waldo of Coachella pictures.



Ivankay, your pics give me a girl boner.

well, ah...ahem, uh...(adjusting collar)..gee, um (passes out)


i stalked :)

coooool. i always feel like the odd goof in that pit. Your evidence verifies my suspicions. Bummed i missed you.


Yayyy Ivan...Love the pics and love that you brought the avie back!!!

Hope the mellow has returned to your board reading.

and humble too :)

i enjoy working at concerts (concert/event planning was one of my jobs in college, worked at jack johnson, nine inch nails, ben harper, flogging molly, nelly furtado [god shes cute], george carlin, dave chappelle, tons more) and spending an afternoon with dani surprising people with passes and more sounds fucking fantastic...

you have the access, and you use your camera well, you do a good job of really communicating the feeling of the event...

also that hot girl in the red tights, this one:

http://buzznet-55.vo.llnwd.net/assets/users16/renegademartian/default/IMG_0619--large-msg-120983556063.jpg

that is a fantastic picture of her butt...

but i was amused because she was all over the stage taking pictures of them, if she wasn't freinds with them security would have told her to gtfo, she was in the way of EVERYONE, the photogs, the sound guy, the audience...lawl...

also in the picture tessa took of you whilst stalking you, i hold my camera the same way, away from my eyes (the advantage of a large viewfinder) so I don't get overly focused on what is in the lens, and don't miss anything interesting...

you are good mr ivankay, and your pictures are appreciated!

Nice, Ivan. Was hoping 2008was the year I finally got my photo pass, but it fell through. Hopefully next year!

even when you are affiliated with a newspaper/magazine, you have to KEEP bothering them, hustling for jobs as a photographer, even if you are doing it for fun to build your portfolio involves, well, hustling :)

promise them pics, promise them publicity (and pull through, no empty promises) and keep at it...they get thousands of requests for photo passes, and the default answer is always no...

mention that you have already bought tickets, and that your work will be published!! (if its not going to be published, why bother?)

also mention how many other shows you have worked at...and how long you have been doing it...most people who request the passes are amateurs, and amateurs are the last people they want running around with cameras that close to the talent...

I agree with this all the way. Most of the other music blogs and photo sites dont catch what you do. You are there as a fan first which makes your photos stand out you post what the fans want to see. You capture more than just a couple of good shots of the bands you capture the emotion....even if you are not trying.

Technically i should put this clip of "Thou Shalt Always Kill" later, but if you don't feel like watching, this can be your soundtrack to further picture viewing. Before posting this clip, i wrote them a note asking if it was cool (because i get on stage level backstage...certain issues) and they responded: "We are more than happy for you to post clips sir." Neat.

One of the positives to having my cameras stolen last October was getting the replacements. The sound recording on my old Canon S70 was very awful if you were anywhere near close. The sound recording on the new camera (Canon G9) is turning out to be pretty bonus. Have to admit i wasn't expecting that when i bought it.

i have to admit being a bit overwhelmed with the editing of the mass amount of pictures taken, but i'll slug through it.

Anyway, this year (like all of them) was great for moment capturing. Some of you may have concluded i was Dani's picture bitch this year. A lot of my time was spent outside the Polo Fields, driving around with the Friend who is Psychic getting pictures of Carpoolachella winners (she'll be posting those...that was actually pretty fun..people get so excited). Being outside the grounds for the extended period of time gave me a chance to get the entering process from a new point of view. When the chance arose to run into a tent while waiting on stuff, i took it.

Band wise my Day 1 had a little or a lot of DJ Mehdi, Midnight Juggernauts, Adam Freeland, Cut Copy, Vampire Weekend, dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip, The Raconteurs, The Swell Season, Datarock, The Verve, Jack Johnson, The Black Lips and Fatboy Slim. i took a lot of shitty pictures, but got a few decent ones. i have posted enough on buzznet (http://renegademartian-coachella2008day1.buzznet.com/user/photos/) now to begin PART 1:

This is excellent. But also kind of sad. Please sit down and remember you were not at you car when this happened, so no "only ifs" please. Your art work was the first car that got Dani's attention when we were looking for Carpoolachella winners on the first day. So i walked over there to see if anyone was home. No one was. As i was taking pictures of the car, a girl got out of her car a couple of rows over and said "Carpoolachella!" That car won the lifetime passes for Day 1.

They wanted to thank you for putting us in the right place and the right time for them to win. i did tell them your car got our attention and they were happy it did.

i struggled for bit on whether or not i should tell you....i'm sorry. i hope you see the positive side how your excellent art led to some genuine Coachella people winning.

We waited at the car for at least 30 mins. I kept telling my friends "just a few more seconds" but nothing. My friends had finished up their warm Guinness and were ready to go in. Damn.

It was all just randomness. There were multiple lots to choose from. The timing of meals and conversations. The "fail" thing is funny, but you can't fail over what you have no control. What were you gonna do? Stay in the car all day? That slight shift in the energy of the field might have put us in Lot 6 and you would have been nursing warm beers. We also don't know how far apart we were from encountering each other. You could have been gone for a while.

by the time i get around to your picture (Day 3) it might be time for the next Coachella. i'm trying to get faster, but i kind of like how my slowness helps the memory linger a bit. Oh, that slowness by the way is related to pickiness and that thing called employment.

Yeah, it stings. Not only did I not win, but I also missed out on meeting Dani and Ivan. It's like I could have one the prizes behind door #1 (tickets for life) & #2 (meeting Dani and Ivan), but instead I got door #3 (Murphy's law). Murphy, you are a cold hearted bitch.

Also, I was getting really pissed off with the heat and the traffic, and I couldn't understand why people weren't forming a second lane, when there was clearly space for it, so about ten seconds after this photo I pulled over to the right and just drove all the way up the empty lane, to the front:

The time thing i won't reveal without permission from a higher source, but i think i can safely say the parking attendants were already going on a 3rd row of cars behind stripe's. As i mentioned earlier, his art caught eyes and was thought to be most cool.

maybe i won't get any grief for this, but for those of you partaking in Carpoolchella in the future ( which should be any of you with 4 or more in the car...18 or over, American citizens, not from New York or Florida...sweepstakes laws), the paper on the dash works and many people won with just that; but (again) it is kind of hard to see when looking for winners. Human eyes can only see so much. a little effort in your Carpoolchella can be fun and more obvious.

We must have just missed eachother. I remember seeing at least 2 rows behind us. The window paint thing was our way of expressing our excitment about Coachella. Every morning when we climbed in the car it was smiles from ear to ear. Anyway, it was a great weekend and this just adds to the memories. I hope that I didn't use up all my carpoolchella mojo this year.

Trust in the tri-pod. The best Christmas present i got in 2007 was a
Joby Gorillapod. The legs are flexible and can fit themselves around poles, fences, tilted on the grass....love that thing. i used that a lot, but also held my breath and stayed still as i could (old school style). Setting the 2 second timer is very regular for shots not involving any immediate need to capture action.

Camera wise for this year was a Canon 40D and G9. i rented a fast 35mm lens (1.4) and wide angle to go with what i had for the 40. The manual settings on the G9 came through great.

The camera is 10%, knowing how to use the damn thing is the other 90%. Most people never RTFM and end up with crap pics. I've seen people, at night, with their cameras in friggin' macro mode. Why bring a camera at all ??
