I shot Wiz Khalifa a few times over the years and it’s been incredible to see his career takeoff from a second stage afterthought in 2010 to a bona-fide amphitheater headliner. In fact, this was his third year of his Under The Influence of Music tour and this year’s tour had quite the lineup – Jeezy, Rich Homie Quan and Ty Dolla $ign and many others. I’ll photos of the rest of the bill up soon.
SHOOTING NOTES: Wiz spent much of the first three songs behind a mic stand. He didn’t move around much but the lighting during his show gives plenty of good backgrounds. The stage at Jiffy Lube Live is really high, and the tour brought a small stage extension that made it even higher, so we were basically shooting him up his nose the whole time. I brought my still and that helped out some although it made it fought o move around in a very crowded pit.
