Today we did a photo shoot for the musical BARE, which plays at the ADC Theatre May 12-16. Emily Newton, Sarah Mercer, Ed Limb and Joe Pitts joined me for a climb up onto the Chapel roof. Two of my old colleagues from work, Catherine Cutts and Ellese Cotterill, also joined us. Those who know me probably know that I have been trying to get up on the chapel roof for a few years now. One time after shooting a concert rehearsal in the chapel I got very close to tagging along a group that was going up, but they were too many already. This time we made it up! I am really happy to finally get up there! Here are the photos from the photo shoot.
I recently read a great article on Petapixel that talked about the importance of using soft light sources, and restricting light to get more interesting shadows. This set of portraits were taken right beside a wall, to create the shadows on the right-hand side of their faces.
Many thanks to Sarah, Ed, Joe and especially Emily for organising this! I am really happy that we made it up on the roof! You can see more of Ed and Joe at the ADC Theatre. Book your tickets on the ADC webpage.
