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!
