My tenure as resident photographer at Central Square Theater has finally come back around to being forefront (as much as I love the music gigs, the kinds of bands I run with can’t usually pay much).
Later this month, CST will be presenting Fever Chart: Three Visions of the Middle East. I’m intrigued by this show, and based on the scene runs I saw yesterday, it should be great. All the actors have great chemistry together, which is something I love to see when shooting three weeks out from the final dress.
As per usual, we were in CST’s studio theater, which has notoriously bad lighting unless it’s set for a show. I basically get house lights and canisters, and those aren’t flattering at all, ever, namely in the shadowed faces under the awkward spacing of lights. I often deal with extremes in this space, because the lighting is so spotty. Images are usually overexposed or underexposed, and if they’ve not got exposure issues, you’d best pray that you captured the right moment, cause that’s what you’ve got.
Still, we did the best we could.
