First Concert: Hembree / by Janet Eckles

I shot my first concert!

Last week, my friend Whitney invited me to see the band Hembree with her at Vaudeville Mews. I decided to try my luck and reached out to the band on Facebook for a photo pass. They were, to my surprise, happy to give me one and put me on their guest list. Look at me go! I was really nervous because I hadn't shot a concert before, but was excited because I loved Hembree's single 'Holy Water'.

The show was super fun - the guys have great energy and sounded really good. They didn't have any restrictions on photos, so I got to try all different angles, and even got to shoot their opener Etheridge Netz, a local artist. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to shoot that night because I learned so much. There was no pressure of having a song limit or other photographers to be aware of, so I shot the majority of the show.

Hembree is a band from Kansas City, where Whitney is from, and have been quickly gaining popularity there. I highly recommend checking them out! 

I'm still learning about editing photos, but I'm happy with how these turned out!
