Week 15 Grease



This week there was the first three of five showings of Grease in the local community theatre in Silver Bay. I have been very active with the theatre when I am in Finland MN and really enjoyed seeing what is probably one of our top productions. It was also the 10 year anniversary for the theatre and really what a showing it has made with the majority of the productions being large 150 people plus musicals. I consider this one of the best community theaters anywhere. My dad is in the production this year so I went to the last dress rehearsal and made some photographs. I got a lot of nice ones even with the extremely challenging lighting conditions. Some highlights I have included here.

There were water droplets on all the flowers and the light was nice and diffused but still bright. The photograph above is my favorite this week because of the stark contrast between the bright yellow and the dark green. I also like ho the plane of focus puts the tip of the inner part of the flower, the water droplets on the petal, and a line of green leaves in focus. I made a hug amount of photographs in a very short time largely because I was using extension tubes on my 50mm prime lens without a tripod and with some wind blowing things around. It is incredibly hard to focus with the extension tubes because I have to move the camera instead of just turning a ring on the lens. I dod manage to cope with fast shutter speeds and lot…
