Asbury Park Music & Film Festival Part Five: Final Cuts
This is the fifth in a series about covering the Asbury Park Music And Film Festival 2018. Part 1 is here. Part 2 is here. Part 3 is here. Part 4 is here.
Even though I only shot one day of the Asbury Park Music & Film Festival, as you can see, I got a lot done during the day. Can you imagine if I had covered more than one day?
I had to put the hard press on to shoot the event this year. When I photographed the event in 2017, it was a the request of Chris Philips, editor of Backstreets.com. Because Springsteen, Southside Johnny and Little Steven were slated to appear (well, Johnny and Steven at least), there was the reason for the hire.
Even though I shoot in Asbury Park a lot, and I’m making some contacts, in the week leading up to the event, I still didn’t have a sponsor. Thanks to Sammy Steinlight who does PR for this event for bringing me on board and getting me the photo pass. He’s great to work with and I do appreciate it.
Here’s some final cuts from that Saturday at the APMFF.
My gear for this shoot:
- Canon 70D
- 24-105mm, f/4.0
- 70-200mm, f/2.8 (new in my bag)
- Fuji X100T
It was a great day, I saw some cool bands, got to shoot Danny DeVito and meet some great photographers. I love seeing this event grow, much like the Sons of Ireland Polar Bear Plunge.
Hope you didn’t mind five posts on this same shoot day. Too much? Let me know what you think.
