It's in camping by the General Store. That picture is the first night party. Last night they had the silent disco in it and in the mornings, group yoga. i only saw the yoga through other people's pictures. It looked incredible. The whole dome filled with people in the same yoga poses. so crowded it extended outside.
Great, exhausting Coachella. The dust kick up today added a certain epicness to the event. Tough to deal with at times, but very rarely does a Coachella not have elemental obstacles to overcome.
i may add some more to represent Weekend 1, but the set is a pretty compete representation of my shooting experience. Flickr has changed their formatting and viewing the collection is a lot cooler. It is even making me reconsider the traditional way of posting pictures in these threads. The set:
What time was that Yuma pic snapped? Very early or very late?
That one was during Raymond Roker's set mid day on Friday (before word got totally out on the Yuma's awesomeness).

Thanks. It is now my most viewed picture on flickr. It became part of flickr's picture blog on Coachella.

Thank you. i was an accidental shooter during Blur. Only a couple of our group were allowed to shoot, but i didn't know that until someone told me after i was already in the photo pit. Wish i was one of the selected photographers so i could have had more access, but then that prompted me to get to Grinderman earlier and that was a big FUCK YEAH.
Seriously, is it repetitiveness, a new camera, or what? A lot different over the years.
i always try to improve. i am using the same camera from last year, but that means a year of getting to know what the camera does and being able to use it faster. i pretty much went with the same lenses except i added (via rental) a 24-70mm 2.8 that i loved using. One major factor towards improving was being able to work with a bunch of great photographers this year. In the past we would just pass each other in the photo pits and chat very briefly. This year Dani and the GV crew brought a lot of us together as part of the Interactive crew. i got to know the picture takers and their work and you always learn from that. we were all kinda of competing with each other to make the facebook/twitter/tumblr posts. It really brought out everyone's A games. i really enjoyed the experience and think this was the funnest year i had shooting. It was more like camp than ever.
