One day, several months ago, my friend Yodit, of Favored by Yodit, came to me with a rather unique concept for her engagement shoot. It was such a cool idea, and well thought out. Her "On the Run Tour" [ Beyonce & JayZ ] inspired concept included a number of props, from a bottle cognac to bank robbers' ski masks. Mmmm, cognac.
So, yesterday, I took a 2 hour road trip from Washington, DC to Philadelphia, PA for Made in America, a 2-day music festival. I was working with a hip-hop based blog, so my focus was capturing the hip-hop acts, but I still planned to shoot the others.
The Summer Spirit Festival is a festival show with a nice mix of R&B/Soul music, and go-go. Perfect for a Washington, DC area audience. Headlining this year's show, was Lauryn Hill. Sorry, "Ms. Lauryn Hill".
I am currently on the road with singer/songwriter Anthony Hamilton. I'm sitting on the tour bus, editing photos, updating my website, eating nacho cheese Doritos, and drinking some old brown liquor. We left Philadelphia several hours ago, now headed to Indianapolis for a music festival tomorrow.
