This was the second time I've photographed the 5x Grammy Nominee, J. Cole. But the first time photographing a performance in a downpour. Sure there has been raining and even a blizzard. But this time it rained and rained and rained (Amanda would understand this) all day during every performance. Day 1 at Made In America had its challenges with this weather. I would hold the camera lens pointed down, wipe the lens. Anticipate a moment and take a shot. Point the camera lens down, wipe and repeat.
