Nikon J1 Shoots the 2012 Newport Jazz Festival
Aug 5, 2012

I hadn't been back in years, but the missus got me tickets for the Saturday show, so we had a good time at the Main Stage. It was too hot to go to the very crowded side stages, although they had an excellent line up as well. Still working through the post-process, but here's some selects.

All shots with the Nikon J1 and the amazing 30-110mm VR. I had more reach than even any of the media shooters, who all topped out at 200mm f2.8. The only guy with better views than us was Erik Jacobs who was shooting on-stage for the Fest.

John Ellis & Double-Wide opening the Main Stage with his tenor sax.

Jenny Scheinman on violin for the Bill Frisell - John Lennon Songbook.

Greg Leisz on keyboards andTony Scheer on Guitar, backing up Bill Frisell.

Darcy James Argue in his characteristic long coat and cravat, setting up for the Secret Society set.

The man himself, Bill Frisell.

Sam Sadigursky working the reed on a featured solo for the Secret Society.
