Shaky Knees was my first experience at a real-life music festival (in my hometown, no less), and I got to go with Paste! I’m exploring shooting street style at festivals and events, and the overcast lighting was a good time to practice (in between downpours). Check out my first gallery here. I had a great time running into friends and musicians alike, and here are some my favorite pictures.
Waiting for Tokyo Police Club, maybe? This was by the Peachtree stage, but it’s all a blur to me at this point. I saw so many bands! Jenny Lewis and Modest Mouse were my favorites, mostly because of the nostalgia factor. I also loved seeing Blitzen Trapper, Deer Tick, Wild Belle, Charles Bradley, and the National.
This guy was actually facetiming during Portugal. The Man.
I was super distraught during Iron & Wine because the sound was so awful—the bass was so loud it gave me a headache and we had to leave.
Georgia flag totem poking around throughout the weekend. No, thankfully this isn’t the racist one. There was also a cat and a SpongeBob balloon. I didn’t know this, but Ryan said they’re big at Bonnaroo. I think we might make a DOGE totem when we go!
Friends! Said quick hellos to excited people running back and forth between shows.
Constantly used Ryan as a stand-in to check the lighting. Managed to get a couple good ones of him. Check out the city in the background! That was such a fun part of poking through Instagram photos, seeing the exciting backgrounds.
Spent some time sitting on the ground, got some cool shots of people from below. Hi Lawson!
I love this guy’s casual nonchalance. It fits so well with his t-shirt.
Jess found this lil ninja fellow hanging out at the festival. I ran into them too late on Sunday, but it would’ve been so fun to photograph him all over the area.
Next up: Hangout Festival this weekend! See you there?
