I decided that I wanted to try for all three: photos, written story and multimedia
Saturday (Rehearsal/Final Dress) - I figured that I'd want to include some 'behind the scenes' shots and footage so I arranged to go to the dress rehearsal. I got a chance to meet everyone and get them used to me being around. AND figure out where I could shoot from and where NOT to be, because the space is at a premium. Getting a chance to just observe was great. It helped me focus on some of the little things I might have missed.
Sunday (Show Day) - You could feel the excitement in the air. Two 1st year photojs came to cover the event for their writing class "event" assignment. I was able to give them a bit of help in what to expect.
I just love live theatre. You never know what's going to happen, which makes things all the more interesting when covering it as media.
Here are some of my favourite photos - full story and video below:
