This was the one. The one photograph and the show that made me believe I can continue on photographing musicians. I've already been photographing musicians and many other subjects for a few years. I still remember leaving this performance that was upstairs at World Cafe Live and thinking. This is it this is what I want to do. Now looking back it is always tough to see back at your older work. Angles I slightly might have changed or fractions of a second I might have waited or not waited for, framing, exposure. etc. But, it is also nice to see growth in my photography, career, and business.
