Musical season has started

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Harry S., Jul 6, 2008.

  1. Some of you know that I have a regular assignment each year, doing all kinds of shots for an open air musical stage. This year they will give "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" - a family musical so to say.

    All shot with D3

    I start off with a snap shot of "The Boss" (85/1.4)

    NIKON D3    ---    85mm    f/3.2    1/640s    ISO 1600

    The leading female role getting acquainted with the stage decoration (28/1.4)

    NIKON D3    ---    28mm    f/7.1    1/1000s    ISO 200

    Both leading actors having a good time (85/1.4)

    NIKON D3    ---    85mm    f/11.0    1/500s    ISO 800

    Joseph in his dreamcoat (or should I say "Dervish" :smile:) , there was a bit of PS involved ... - that's one of the promotion photos (28/1.4)

    NIKON D3    ---    28mm    f/4.5    1/2000s    ISO 800

    Family photo - trimmed for a slightly older look. This or the original will be blown up to about 4X2m and will be integrated in the stage decoration (85/1.4)

    NIKON D3    ---    85mm    f/5.6    1/400s    ISO 400

    More to come as soon as the rehearsals with full stage light have started (in about one week). Now that I have a D3 there are no more excuses - any bad pics will be credited to me instead of the equipment.

  4. Wonderful!! I especially like the promotion and family photo. I look forward to more as the season progresses.
  5. Thanks Greg, Bob and Crystall!

    Here is another snap shot, showing the choreographer working hard :biggrin:

    But it seems impossible to have even a short nap without someone watching.
    AFS 28-70/2.8, ISO 1600

    NIKON D3    ---    28mm    f/8.0    1/100s    ISO 1600
