Rock of Ages at the State Theater – My Favorite Shot

Mar 27, 2023

I’m busy working up the couple of images from the Gallery 220 opening, but took a break to do my favorite shot from Rock of Ages at the State Theater in town. It’s a lot of fun and laid back – just don’t dally in the aisles. I almost got run over at one point. Late in the show I grabbed this image – fronted by Bre Lewis. My camera and Bre always seem to hit it off – I always know ahead of time I’ll come up with something great. In this one the other two cast members are perfectly positioned. As an bonus, JimmyO on drums seems to be photobombing the show pic. 

Of course I realize how that happened. I was shooting from the back of the theater with the zoom set at about 170mm, compressing the view. This hasn’t been added to a folio yet. Some time later this busy week.

Ps. the color version has its own punch, but that’s up to Moxie, the show director whether to use it – all those went to her.
