Philadelphia, PA, 7.30.2014 – Photos of Day 1 at Budweiser’s Made in America Festival including headliner Kanye West, The National, The Neighbourhood, City and Colour, Big Daddy Kane, BAS, The OBGMs, Chromeo and Steve Aoki. Philadelphia Edition.
This was the second time I covered Made in America Festival, the first being the inaugural one in 2012. I skipped 2013 but was excited to be back this year with Kanye headlining figuring this might be one of the few chances I get to shoot him. But it was like taking Kate Beckinsale to a cocktail party on your one and only date, and she wore a burka. The silhouettes are what most of us ended up getting. But towards the end of the 2 songs I decided to overexpose the shot in hopes of getting some detail in Kanye and then brought the highlights back. Happy with what I got.
Compared to 2012, this year didn’t seem to have the same energy in terms of the bands on the line-up. 2012 we had acts like The Hives and Janelle Monae. This time we didn’t.
