This session covers the different aspects of theatre photography. We provide advice for settings to choose for shooting theatre and look at a number of different settings that you could select, depending on how the production is lit.
We look at other aspects of providing images for a theatre company – in addition to the production photographs, we examine the need for headshots, publicity images and the challenges of photographing backstage.
The session also covers some of the cultural aspects of the theatre – such as superstitions, so that you don’t offend the people you are there to photograph.
For any attendees who have previously done any theatre photography there will be an opportunity, as part of this session, to have your work critiqued.
Suitable for: This is an intermediate level session designed for anyone who has an interest in theatre and thinks they may have an opportunity to be involved in providing photography to a theatre. It is expected that you will be familiar with exposure techniques.
