I meet some interesting and talented people in my field. My roommate began inviting a female acapella group over to the house to practice several weeks ago. They were practicing for two different sets at Folk Festival, which is a weeklong celebration of folk music in Juneau, Alaska. The Queens performed in Centennial Hall on Thursday night. I was lucky enough to take some pictures.
I got to meet everyone multiple times. So when they finally performed I made sure I had my camera and I was in the front of the stage.
I'm pretty happy with the way the shots came out. I definitely need to refine my game, and make sure I keep track of which songs are being performed when.
