I've shot a ton of bands in the Athens area recently, and last night I got a chance to shoot Willie Nelson in Neslonville. The last shot is a panoramic from my cellphone. I'm not that big of a fan, but I jumped on the chance to shoot him because I knew my grandmother would love to have a picture of him. In the past few weeks I've been in a couple different venues and witnessed a wide variety of bands, from female metal to punk, and indie to bluegrass, but I've got to say, Willie Nelson fans are way angrier than any metal/punk fans if you get in front of them. Myself and a fellow photographer got heckled and booed by a large group of fans for trying to kneel down in front of the stage . . . I almost couldn't stop myself from laughing.
