Outtakes is a series of blog posts in which CL staff photographer Joeff Davis talks about photo shoots from this week's Music Issue:

The concept for the Balkans photo was to shoot these kids at a high school because they’re so frickin’ young. We wanted to try to capture some of that young teenage hyperactivity.

When two of them showed up over an hour late for the shoot it seemed like it would be hit or miss. But when they finally parked their car, they sprinted the last block like Olympic athletes so we forgave them. One showed up with four medals around his neck and the other took his shirt off and started blowing his nose into the other's hand.

At the end of the shoot we accosted a dog that looked like royalty as it was walking down the street with its owner. So we posed the boys with the dog and had each band member hold a piece of the leash. The contrast between the very regal dog and these young crazy kids worked great, but in the end we decided to go with a photo for the CL print version that best captured their youthful energy. — Joeff Davis
