I love seeing all of your pictures! It's cool to see how everyone captures the mood of the festival. I've got a load of pictures, but my FB albums aren't public, so I'll have to upload them to flickr sometime so that I can share them with everyone.
edit: I also took some pictures with my Holga, but have yet to get the film developed. I'm anxious to see if/how they turned out.
James, you got the Foals shot I just couldn't seem to get. I had a few dozen from him in the crowd, but nothing worked. Kudos, those shots are hard to get. Love the Superjam shots also. Awesome shots from Arch too. Cool thread.
Just curious what you did to the Macca picture and the picture of the food vendors at night to make the colors pop. onion
For the Macca one, I simply darkened the blacks to eliminate any graininess, which in turn, accentuated the colours.
The food vendors one was a slightly longer exposure. Long enough to bring in more brightness/colours, but still short enough to avoid too much motion blur (although, in hind sight, a little motion blur could have been cool in that photo). I then darkened the blacks and added a little structure to the photo.
My pictures aren't as awesome as everyone elses but here's a link to them. There's a mix of iphone/point and shoot/DSLR photos in there. Haven't gotten my film developed yet, and I'm anxious to see them. I wish I had brought my DSLR in every day. Next year... Also, don't mind the pictures of me and my cousin being jerks at Foamhenge...
this was my first bonnaroo and it was the BEST TIME OF MY LIFE!! the only awful part was waiting 4 hours on line at 3 am to get in after driving 18 hours from NY. but i was able to see the beautiful sunrise each morning (see below!)
of course i had to get a picture, my (ironic) shirt was begging for it
and if you saw a TerminatorHoff at any point during the weekend, that was us
i had a blast. bjork, david byrne & st vincent (who i got to see again a few weeks ago..!) tom petty, zz top, tame impala, passion pit were some of my favs...but aside from zz top (who i left mccartney early to get a great spot) i was never close enough to the stage to get good pics with my phone. i had one great moment on friday night after getting separated from my friends, and i was looking around for the xmas barn. someone came up to me and simply said "don't look lost, you're here" and it made all the difference. it was so wonderful. hoping i have the funds to go back next year!!

The photos on this thread are fantastic. Makes me regret not bringing in my DSLR ... but I probably would have missed seeing things by looking for them.
Definitely. I took my D600 and felt like it was more of a hassle than what it was worth. I only got one or two photos I actually liked. Probably won't take anything other than my phone for photos next year.
That was my friends' white gazebo! Great pics here, guys. I have to try to remember to get back and post some.
Oh that's awesome! I wound up hanging out them them for a little while after Petty. I was pretty thrashed but I believe it was a brother and sister. Very cool people!
Yes, they are brother & sister. It was a great spot to hang out! I listened to part of Petty's set from there but no one else was there then so I left after a while. I must have just missed them and you!
I was just lurking through the pictures you posted on Facebook and found the one of the couple on the leash. I stood right next to them at the Paul McCartney show, and the leash was to keep the guy's wife from wandering off, haha. She was drunk as shiz and dancing away from him, but he'd tug her back home whenever she got too far away. It was hilarious!
