With our media passes on our wrists (Thanks to The Metropolitan d'Etroit), cameras and water packs strapped to our backs we ventured into the magical world that is Electric Forest. This music/art festival in it's fifth year has grown to be an amazing spectacle of lights, music, and people embracing all of their creative visions and ideas. For Christian this was his first music festival and he wanted to focus on taking portraits and lifestyle images of the artists and festival goers alike. Victoria concentrated her efforts on photographing the stage presence of the musical acts and performers. Together FYT painted a picture of the experience of this festival for our viewers to enjoy!
