First Fairy

First Fairy

f/4.5, 1/80, ISO-1600, 33mm

Another shot from the production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” performed by our local theatre group. This is a familiar face to this blog, being one of my favorite subjects to photograph. She is so expressive and confident, and nothing intimidates her. In this show she had a small role, but an important one for her ability to carry off the dance number of this character, which could have been performed by few people in this community. She approached this small role with all the seriousness and strength she brings to leading roles, and it really showed. She is expressive and dramatic, and her dance is one of the high moments of a very good show. I am honored to have been able to capture a brief moment of it here.

    • The lighting designer for this show is very gifted and has a really good sense of how to make light lie exactly the way he wants for dramatic effect. I was fortunate to be in the right position (standing on the arms of a seat in the audience, actually) to get a shot of the light falling on Katie while all around her is black, yet the background lit softly as well.
