    These are wonderful. I've enjoyed all of your stage photography. It's kind of weird seeing microphones taped to their faces. The first and third are my faves out of this set and on your gallery I really love the second one.

    Great work!

    You lucky one, you always had such a good chance to get up close and shoot from the side...! Makes much better photos, I should say, than those I could take during (!) the actual performance of the "Frau-Holde"-musical back in March. (Many of my photos can be found in my blog, and only there).

    Thanks Ajay. Stage performances are like shooting fish in a barrel ... pretty easy with good results. The lavs do get in the way ... but the performance was very very good ... so much better than any performance by my high school drama dept ... then again ... my high school wasn't Whitney.

    Yep ... this allows me to shoot wide and get on stage.

    In a way that's true, only does he speak the language with this distinctive Austrian accent :D.

    Totally, what kind of school is this anyway?

    I looked through your SmugMug the other night. Your black and whites are awesome (as well as the Whitney stuff).

    Nice shots for all.

    But the first photo, the 1800's style dress in colours? And 4th photo in today's style dress with microphone sticking out on their faces, in B/W?
    The artisitic expression up side down.:wink: Otherwise they are good stage performances by the look of it from the enthusiastic participants.

    Thanks.
    WHS is:
    In Cerritos, CA and is the #1 public high school in California (by testing) and, I believe, the #1 public high school in the nation based upon per student average for SAT scores.

    WHS isn't:
    A Magnet school. While Whitney, like a Magnet, recruits by invitation only, but, where Magnets will emphases only one subject (like science or art), WHS stresses high academic standards across all disiplines. At one time the only classes offered at WHS were AP courses.

    WHS is a special place for kids and I get volunteered by the teachers and admin for a number of activities including photography.

    LOL -- for the record the musical takes place during FDR's first term in office, post 1933-ish. The "1800" looking attire represents the "hired help" clothing for that time period.

    The primary reason for B&W conversion, is this case, was due to the kids blasting away with the spot lights ... it's easier to recover from extremes in light values in B&W than color.

    PS- As to the Lavs sticking out of their faces ... c'est la vie.
