Chapter 8. Photographing People > Theatrical Photography

Theatrical Photography

A theatrical shot differs slightly from the concert photograph in that the center of interest changes throughout the show. The lighting conditions also tend to be more evenly balanced (FIGURE 8.20). As a result, long telephoto lenses are not always needed. In fact, some situations can be shot using a normal 50mm focal length and at times a wide angle.

Figure 8.20. A stage performance of My Favorite Year was shot with a Canon 20D and a 200mm lens. The exposure was 1/200 second at f/3.2, using an ISO 400 setting.
