Last weekend I went to a local music festival called Woodfest, watched some great live music and took some photos!
Held at a local country park only 10 minutes away in the car, Woodfest is a great little music festival, showcasing talented artists of all ages.
Luckily I had already heard of some of the performers thanks to Soundcloud, Instagram and even from going to local gigs!
Though I did catch one band on the main stage, I mostly spent the afternoon at the acoustic stage.
The line up here was full of young musicians, both local and some who had travelled just for the festival!
I chose to bring my camera along as I heard the weather was forecast to be a scorcher, and I wanted to experiment with some live music shots. So far I've only really photographed indoor gigs, so this time natural light was on my side!
Once I was home I looked in the mirror and realised I had caught the sun on my nose and forehead, so it turns out holding the camera in front of my face didn't help at all!
