So i went and did my thing at the theatre for their production of Singing In The Rain.

Quite a good production i thought, they even had the rain thing happening on stage, which is quite an accomplishment for amateur theatre i thought.

So anyway, on with the pics...

1. Love this shot. Print off a 10x15" for display in the theatre and i am happy with it. So don't rip it to shreds or i will cry :D I thought about taking the background people out, but i don't think they distract.

5. Token rain shot. Light was CRAP for this (compared to everything else). Light was pretty good, so i left the primes in my bag at the top of the theatre and ran with my f2.8 zooms as i prefer to. This shot was at ISO3200 f2.8 1/50th and that was underexposing by a stop and a bit to try and get something usable!!! Shame on me for leaving my primes in the bag. I didn't have time to get them as by the time i messed around with them the scene would have been over, as it only went for a minute or so. Most of the others are a little sharper than this one (a little too soft probably), but it is such a classic pose, i had to include it.

Nice expressions & timing.
Looks like some blown channels and a bitt much NR on first three.
Last one is too motion blurred for me.
I like #2 and 3 best.
#4 is nice, but cropped a bit odd.

Very nice! I like the expressions and the frozen moment of #4.

Kind of a random question, but how did you start off shooting for theatre productions? I know production directors wouldn't just hire a photographer without any previous performing arts shooting experience. So where do you get that "previous performing arts shooting experience?"

Thanks all for the comments.

Nitro,

I actually did it for free! :D
I know that sounds like a cop out, but what i was actually trying to do was build my portfolio and not actually looking for paid work (well, not actively). They were impressed with the results, and I got hired. I also end up doing their website too, but thats another story.

I am hired by the musical society that puts these things together. They are a little larger than your average musical society, so that works to my advantage. I sell them a quantity of CDs too, which they then sell to the cast etc at a margin to help pay for what they pay me.

Hope that helps.

Rob

Thanks John.

Yeah it works both ways.

It was a real shame about the quality of light in the rain scene, buy live and learn not to put down primes EVER> :D

nice set. as mentioned, first ones do seem a bit "plastic". i like the first one the best and don't think that the background to too distracting at all.
