Capturing The Soul Of A Music Festival

2016 marked the 15-year anniversary of Austin City Limits and the tenth year in a row that Sony Artisan of Imagery Chad Wadsworth shot the iconic music festival. Armed with his Sony α7R II, α6300 and RX1R II, he recounts the challenges and excitement of capturing "the soul of ACL Fest" in an article on SteveHuffPhoto.com.  

In the article, Chad discusses his daily gear selections and he explains why he used each camera/lens combination. He also shows an selection of photos from each day as he walks us through his decision-making process for the weekend of photography and music.

"Beyond the challenge of executing your photography, festivals are a war waged on the body. Over the weekend my iPhone claimed a total of 33 miles walked, a journey made more bearable by lightweight and compact mirrorless equipment." - Chad Wadsworth
