School Play Shoot

Last evening was the final dress rehearsal for a school performance of "A Murder is Announced." I've uploaded a gallery of images from the rehearsal to

I've shot several plays in the same auditorium so I know what settings to start out with. The only variables being what lighting is used in the various scenes. An aperture of f/2.8 and ISO 3200 seems to work well for all but the darkest scenes. Here are a couple of shots followed by an embedded slide show.

Something different this time was that instead of using off camera flash and a reflector for head shots we simply used a single spotlight against the closed stage curtain. Much quicker and easier and I like the results.

The total time required for shooting the over four hundred original images, editing and processing the best ones and uploading them to zenfolio was between nine and ten hours. With about five hours of sleep wedged in the middle.
