Stockport Garrick: Art

I was thinking today what makes a good theatre photograph.  Obviously some of the same rules apply with theatre photography as with any other field:  Composition, exposure, etc.  For example yesterdays’s POTD works well for composition.  I’ve got my main subject on one of the 1/3 divisions (the so-called rule of thirds).  The image has both foreground and background interest.  But as I said that’s true for any photograph.

Today’s POTD however is about the magic of theatre photography.  It is about capturing a moment and capturing the emotion.  If you can do that and still get good exposure and compostion then that, I believe, is what make a good theatre photograph.
