Miranda Lambert & Jon Pardi & Lucie Silvas in Phoenix
Miranda Lambert visited Phoenix on 17 February 2018 and brought along Lucie Silvas and Jon Pardi. Lucie opened the show, followed by Jon. Personally, I’m a huge Jon Pardi fan. A few years ago, I went to another event in Phoenix and he played maybe two songs and then left. I always suspected he got sick. Then he had a few hits and I had wished he gave us more.
We were in the far end of the Talking Stick Arena (where the Suns play), squared up with the stage. Although further away, I like these “end zone” seats because it’s easier to photograph.
Arena policies normally ban “professional cameras” if you don’t come in with a photographers pass. Now, define “professional camera.” These security people have no idea what it is. So I was prepared. The security guard looked at my Canon G3x and said “no professional cameras.” I said, “look… one piece, no removable lens!” And he told me yeah ok.. and passed me through the gate.
Take a look at some of the shots I got. The G3x non-removable lens as the equivalent of a 24-600mm lens! And some of these photos I took with 10,000 ISO. Not long ago 10,000 ISO would mean HEAVY GRAIN, but not now. I also post processed the photos using Lightroom. By the way, I love the new dehaze feature in Lightroom.
Until My Next Adventure,
See You On Down the Road!
