All the recent buzz surrounding this year's Day for Night music and art festival has me nostalgic for last year's show. I revisited the photos of one of my favorite acts of that festival: Janelle Monáe . That weekend I discovered the secret to photographing Miss Monáe:
attend a concert where she is performing,
point your camera in her direction, and
press the largest button on your camera.
Seriously. She is such an amazing and expressive performer that it is tough to take a bad photo of her. Here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy.
