So me and my pal Billiam are attending our third consecutive Bear Creek Music Festival and I have zero doubts that this one will be just as hot as the previous ones. Slight twist though: this year I will be attending purely as an observer/enjoyer. Last year I was granted a press pass and used it as an excuse to rent some cool photo gear like a steadicam and a 2nd camera body. I also brought along a custom slider I made, which was fun to use. The results of all this are dutifully recorded under the Bear Creek tag. It was an awesome experience, no question, but I do admit, when you’re investing energy into chronicling what’s happening, you do miss out on ‘the moment’.
This year I will be solely devoted to savoring ‘the moment’ as it unfolds. And that’s gonna be awesome!
