Taking good photos of live performance is a tricky thing, especially if your subject likes to dance around making weird faces that tend to exaggerate the fleshy area around her jawline. (Ahem.) That being a given, I'm always happy when I see a flattering shot of myself captured during a stand-up set, and I think this is a lovely one by Greg Gilbert of Aemiessence Fine Arts from the November 13th Living Room Comedy show in Park Slope. The show is run by newlyweds Abbi Crutchfield and Luke Thayer, who happen to have had their engagement photos done by Greg as well. You can see those here, if you like. Such a handsome couple!
Me backstage, wigging out. Thanks, Greg!
