I started shooting for DC Music Download this month and I'm so happy to be covering gigs for them. When I first started shooting a few years ago, DCMD was the first outlet to let me cover something for them and it was at 930 Club which was also my first time shooting at a larger venue. So it's cool to be working with DCMD now that time has past and I feel more confident in myself as a photographer. Last week, I shot DCMD's Luce Unplugged series they have almost every month at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. I've seen pictures in the past from bands playing here and always wanted to go there and shoot. It's a beautiful museum with plenty of great angles to shoot from. DC's own Cigarette were playing and towards the end of their set, I went two floors above them and took some overhead shots. I'll be back shooting more shows at the Smithsonian for sure.
Oh and one more plug lol I'm loving Phoebe Robinson's Sooo Many White Guys podcast. It focuses on any and everyone in entertainment who isn't a straight white dude. The guests are awesome, talking about important and hilarious topics - highly recommend.
