Willie Nelson - Concert Portrait
Posted By: Jim Radcliffe, 03-19-2016, 09:04 AM

During every concert I shoot I like to take what I consider to be a Concert Portrait. This is one I took of Willie Nelson performing at Billy Bob's Texas (The World's Largest Honky Tonk) in Fort Worth, Texas. Using the K5 and the DA* 50-135mm lens.

Classic and almost a cliche, but still very, very good

... but do you not have a licensing issue with the image of a performer without their permission ... or do you have it?
As the house photographer I am free to photograph all artists that perform at that venue.

Great! Thanks for your work. It is superb!

I double down on my last comment ... I am blow away by your k5 album and I haven't even gotten to the rest. And am certainly jealous of the the DA* 16-50 and its result. Great work ...
