Furthur at the Greek Theater

I’ve been wanting to get this photo of the Greek Theater with the Campanili and the bay in the distance for a really long time and just before the Furthur concert, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity.

By the time we were done filling the car with gear we had loaded four camera bodies, six lenses, four speedlights, two umbrellas, a reflector, various light stands, a set of cybersyncs, and an ice chest full of water, root beer and coke. When the girls arrived, they piled in and we took off to Santa Cruz. Continue reading
