It might not look like much, but it’s kind of a big deal… representatively, anyway.
This, my friends (and people I definitely do not know), is my first official photographer pass and credential as a professional photographer.
Sure, it was for a friend’s band’s performance…, and it isn’t exactly the kind of photography I am aiming to do most of the time…, but it was also for real – I, Hannah, was listed as “Photographer” on the special guest list.
I declared myself a photographer and that I am doing photography (not just ‘trying to get it going’ or ‘trying it out’) this past Wednesday night, and, here I am, Friday night, with an official photographer pass.(!)
How cool is that?(!!!)
Again, it isn’t the style of photography I’m aiming to do with most of my photoing, but it is still totally fun and totally cool!
Special bonus that they are totally okay if none of the photos turned out… I had never photographed a band in a club with uber-nuts lights flashing everywhere except on the band members’ fronts, so it was a good low-risk opportunity to practice and to learn.
