I arrived at the Roxy a bit early cause I didn’t want any trouble at the door. I was actually there before the security and door people got there, just as the band was finishing the final touches on stage. I went inside and then upstairs and I started to look for any sign of life. It wasn’t until I walked into one of the dressing rooms that I noticed my friend and my photographic subject, Caroline D’Amore (http://www.carolinedamore.net). She was running around getting all the final preparations done with make up, hair, and everything else that goes on before the performance.
Caroline D’Amore was looking great. She was wearing a black short mini-dress designed with fully reclaimed and re-purposed material, the outfit designed by Baby Steinberg (http://www.babysteinberg.com). She was ready to perform at the famous Roxy Night Club. Caroline was going to go on before her boyfriend’s band, the Street Drum Corps, who were the headliners for the Roxy.
Her performance was incredible. After her show and before his, I captured Caroline D’Amore hanging out and kissing with her boyfriend Bobby Alt, who is the singer and drummer of Street Drum Corps (http://www.streetdrumcorps.com). I quickly took the opportunity to have them pose for a few artistic photos of the couple on the red and blue running lights along the upstairs hallway. I told them to get into a position and then not to move. I was going to be shooting at 1/8th of a second, even my heartbeat, could make my shots blurry. Somehow, I was able to pull it off.
