A dress rehearsal shoot

Back in July I was given the chance to cover the dress rehearsal for a local amateur theatre group at the Price of Wales Theatre in Cannock, Staffordshire. The brief was to get as many images as I  could. A tall challenge.

I did not want to use flash as this would have not been effective due to the distance from the stage and the performers, plus, if  I was close enough to use any flash, it would have cancelled out the stage lighting and not really captured the colour of the evening.

So i opted for a high ISO, ranging from 800 to 3200 and used my feet to move around rather than stay static.

The evening was a great success, and i think that i got some good images. The performers were great and from what i am told, the actual show was very well received.

I have put just a few of the many images that i took on the night and hope you enjoy the, I  thoroughly enjoyed attending the rehearsal, and finger crossed i get the chance to do it again next year.

I must pay a big thank you to Emily Walt for giving me the opportunity to attend, plus to all of the performers who didn’t seem to mind me too much, thank you all and best wishes for the future.
