#DCFocused Pic 5: Introducing the Music Project

Of all the different photography niches, concert photography is one of the more challenging, mostly because of the light, which is constantly changing and often not very good. Yet, it’s also one of the most exciting kinds of photography because of the energy of the performers and crowd, and, well, it’s as close as most of us will ever get to being rock stars. We’re using today’s Pic 5 to introduce the DCFocused Music Project.

The project’s goal is to chronicle the DMV’s vibrant music scene, introduce readers to music they might not otherwise know and offer an outlet for local concert photographers. Check out the Music Project and get in touch with us if you’d like to contribute.
