Roc Marciano is an up and coming name in the hip-hop world, with his smooth flow and old school NYC sound. I really enjoyed his set last month at the Howard Theater. I expect we’ll be hearing more about him very soon.

This was one of the first shows I shot with my newly purchased 17-35/2.8 lens and I was really thrilled with the results. I’ve said this before, but I have no idea how I lasted this long without an ultra-wide zoom. I love this lens so much. I allows me to get a full perspective from the front row of a show, where with the 24-70/2.8, I was mostly shooting from the knee up.
