    Hey Antarctican-

    Many thanks ... these were shot for the students. I get roped into volunteering at Whitney (the number 1 public high school in California by testing) ... this came out of another roping. I've been called "rank" before but never "rawk".

    Gary

    PS- Thanks for checking out my photo site ... and it's okay to be critical ... to paraphase Mao ... we learn by our mistakes not by our sucesses.

    Wow, how priviledged to have been given these wonderful points of view. Last time I did stage photography (two weeks ago), all I could do is silently creep around the audience hall (in an attempt not to disturb) and photograph front views of the stage.

    You worked with the stage lights very much to your (and the photographed students') advantage. I like this! I'm not sure I'd have really known how to WELL and CORRECTLY photograph against the stage lights. So maybe it was all the better I was forced to photograph with those in my back... :scratch: ;)

    Dunno about it being a priviledge ... I get access to the stage and the school gets photos ... THe drama director lets me shoot the dress rehearsal so I can climb all over the stage and maximize the directional stage lighting for dramatic effect and maximize wide lenses ...
    i.e.
    [​IMG]

    Really couldn't shoot this during a peformance. On the day of the event I shot from the center of the balcony for more traditional front photos ...
    ala
    [​IMG]

    Typically, when one encounters back lighting ... go to spot meter (or incident if you have a handheld meter) ... or over expose and check the historgram and LCD.

    I got a free ticket for the performance, got in early and grabbed the seat of my choice (front row balcony) to photographt the event (similar "priviledges" I would have received when I was shooting news).

    I and a friend had a lot of fun shooting with dramatic lighting and the students got about 300+ images for the schools wedsite.
