Every year, St. John’s has a dope line up for annual Haraya Festival towards the end of the school year. From Kanye, Kendrick Lamar, Remy Ma, Neyo, Ryan Leslie, 2 Chainz, to SJU’s (or the newer kids, STJ) very own, J. Cole. This year’s headliner, Queens bred, Nas. Luckily I got all access to the show.
Though I didn’t shoot much, I got some photographs I really love. My goal was to take advantage of the amazing stage lighting and shoot with available light. I wanted to create some very moody photos. I try my best to shoot what i want straight in camera so I do not have to edit or tamper with photos. My mindset was to shoot as if I had a film camera to make every shot count. Besides adding text to one photo, everything is raw. Let me know what you think!
