Carlos Santana
Lens: DA* 55 Camera: K-3 Photo Location: central New York 
Posted By: kyricom, 04-09-2016, 09:40 AM

Carlos Santana came near us a few days ago, and we went and saw first hand why he is a "legend." The spotlight was obviously on Santana, but everyone in that band was phenomenal! One kind of fun thing they did was for a couple of songs, they projected him playing the same song back at Woodstock on a giant screen behind him. They blew the roof off the place! If you get a chance to see them, I would highly recommend it.

Unfortunately, you couldn't take in cameras that had lenses more than 2 inches long, so I was restricted to my 55mm. We had decent seats, but I still would have liked having my 200 or 300mm. So, a few of these shots are cropped pretty good, but I think they came out ok, all things considered.

Nice shots. We had a chance to see him a few years ago, and yes, he puts on a great show!

My g7 with a 35-100 would be fun to try. 200mm ff equivalent in a package less than 2" long. You did great with the 55!

Great shots. He's coming to our neck of the woods in July. Other greats are also coming over though. So hard to decide...

Just an FYI, a new album, "Santana IV" to be released next week. It's a return to his original style, with many of the original band members (Rolie, Schon, et al..)
