Theatre photography tips and advice

A number of people have asked if I can make available the content of the workshops that I ran a while back, on line. As their emphasis was very much on practical sessions the best that I can do is distill some of the recommendations and advice.

I shall post the hints and tips over the next few weeks whenever I have a spare moment.

Of course, all the normal rules and recommendations of photography in general apply here too, regarding composition, framing etc. The hints and tips may broadly be categorized into one of three areas: technical, aesthetic and social. I shall try and provide a mix of all as we progress.

For me the theatre has been a great passion since the 1970s. I believe that my photography is attempting to extend that enthusiasm and engagement to a wider audience. So, the first tip is to embrace the challenge and enjoy the experience, every production will be different.
