Photographer's Note

Carol Chaikin wails while sitting in with Sue Palmer's Motel Swing Orchestra. While female saxophonists are rare, it is even more rare to see one as expressive as Carol. I have a friend who heads a group she calls "Not Your Mother", so when I saw Carol in such an unconventional role, the jazz vernacular "Not yo' Mama" leapt into mind.

I have been resistant to using flash because of loosing the natural club feeling of ambiance achieved with available light. A Large aperature "fast Glass" lens however, shortens the DOF so that it is really difficult to get the subject in focous. I have started experimenting with using flash and smaller aperatures, giving a more "natural" feel with enhanced DOF.
