‘Stage Right’ by Rob Cannon

No matter how big the venue, there is always someone taking a photo at a concert. While it’s common to see the flash of a smartphone, finding a place try out a new lens or camera body can be difficult. Jammin’ Java, just a thirty minute drive outside the city, is unique for having an open photography policy. The photo above was taken of the Athens, Georgia based Emily Hearn last Thursday night.

A life-long resident of the DC area, I recently started viewing the city from a different angle: behind a camera. I enjoy capturing concerts, dance, and festivals. My photos are often of concerts seen on popular local blogs, such as DCist.
