Pine Leaf Boys at Festivals Acadiens et Créoles, Lafayette, Oct. 15, 2017
The Pine Leaf Boys closed out Scène d’Anniversaire at Festivals Acadiens et Créoles in Lafayette’s Girard Park late Sunday afternoon, Oct. 15, 2017. Strong contrast between shade and bright late afternoon sunlight on the stage created photographic problems that I that I could only partly correct in Lightroom. Much of the stage was quite dark. I had to push the ISO to 16,000 on my Nikon D850 when I photographed Drew Simon on drum at the back of the stage. I was also pretty much exhausted and kept making errors with camera settings. My photographic complaints aside, the Pine Leaf Boys sounded great, and fans crowded around the stage.
