In mid February, one of my piano students had the opportunity to play the Grieg Piano Concert in A minor with her high school orchestra on Concerto Night. She played beautifully. After nine months of hard work and dedication, she saved her best for the night of the performance. Photographing a live performance can present some tricky issues to deal with: lighting, angle, lighting, knowing which moment to capture, lighting. But it can also be a lot of fun. I’ve participated in many community theater productions, and I enjoy the pictures people sneak during an actual performance more than the staged production stills, there is so much more energy.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE PHOTOS OF LIVE PERFORMANCES.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
