This photo was taken as part of my business cause: performing arts at Gulf Islands Secondary school. It was made during yesterday’s dress rehearsal.
The photographic challenges were many. The rehearsal runs continuously, and while I was free to move, the actors were almost constantly moving so I was continuously unsure what would happen next. And there are no ‘do-overs.
Further, the lighting was a combination of harsh directional sunlight mixed with solid black shadows.
This makes getting a decisive moment—both realistically and technically—hugely difficult. So when the occasional image, like the one above successfully captures a moment, I count it a challenge met.
