    Shots from the Newport Guitar Festival

    The Newport Guitar Festival was held in Miami Beach last weekend. I just finished getting my gallery uploaded. I had help covering this event in the form of my 10-year old daughter Melissa as assistant photographer. She was packing a Canon SD750 point & shoot while I carried my trusty M8 + Nokton 40 mm.

    This was not a music festival, it was a luthier convention. Luthiers are guitar-makers. All of the instruments here are hand-made, sometimes taking almost 2 1/2 years from order to delivery and costing up to $50,000.

    Carlos,
    You captured some amazing instruments. Do you have any shots to post that your assistant took? (I looked through the gallery and I could tell by the file names which ones your assistant took, but give her credit on here!)
