Son of legendary country music singer Hank Williams, Hank Williams Jr has arguably equaled his fathers influence in his own right. As Hank puts it “I play a few shows a year…when I want, where I want, and for who I want”. Atlanta is fortunate to have the artist perform in our town every few years as he brings his entertaining blend of southern rock, outlaw country, and traditional country influence performing exceptional shows that demonstrate the artists depth and breadth as a musician and songwriter.
Photography was limited to a very quick first two songs which provided around 7 minutes of total lens time with the artist. Lighting for Hank Williams Jr is always grand throughout the set while the band lands mostly in shadow with the exception of catching the follow spots from time to time. Exposures fell at a delightful 1/400 F3.2 ISO1600 on the main artist to 1/200 F3.2 ISO4000 on the band. Photography duties fell to the Nikon D700’s and 70-200 2.8/24-70 2.8 zooms.
