The Black Box Effect – More Rogue Rehearsal Images

Apr 2, 2022

Shooting in bad, uncontrollable lighting leads to doubling or tripling one’s exposures combined with a huge reduction in usable images. So while I actually have more images from this Black Box rehearsal that I am using, I had to expose and trash far more than usual. But combine the fact that rehearsals are making so much progress with diligent efforts to take advantage of (accidental) lighting effects, some of the results are quite striking. I targeted six for today, but only managed to finish three – simply far too much work to do on them. The intro image shows the guys assuming their starting position for one of the skits: Alex, Nate and Caleb – with Will and Jeremy in the background…

Next image is a barely lit shot of Brian and Bre, with some of what is to be going on around them with Katie, Caleb and Jess showing…

Finally another scene from "Mein Herr”…

Added to the front end of the Rogue Swan folio page for Next Chapter Rehearsals (just after Head Shot series) HERE full size, downloadable, etc.

Rogue performances are always great. I photograph them, seeing the show full throiugh twice – and Nan gets a ticket to both of those so she can too. She enjoys the second performance as much as, if not more than, the first. https://hdgoperahouse.org/event/rogue-swan-presents-the-next-chapter-unfolds/
