Photography and Plays
A few people asked what plays I ended up acting in for the Marathon, so below I created a list. I also have decided to make shakespearemarathon.com semi-public. What does semi-public mean? Check out the site. If you can figure it out, good for you. If you can’t, congrats. You’re officially semi-retarded. Go buy a helmet.
Also, on my last day off from this madness I spent pretty much the whole day taking headshot photos for a couple of young ladies who will be auditioning for SSC’s upcoming season. Now they’re both very brave for two reasons. One, it’s TOUGH auditioning for ANYTHING. It takes a lot of guts to put yourself out there and I’m very proud of them both! But also, they had me take their pictures! I don’t think I flatter myself too much when I say I’m OK with certain subjects. I have moments of magic with buildings, nature, and “guerrilla candids” (ie; random people in crowds, catching humans in motion, etc), but actual posed portraits have NEVER been my thing. Just can’t do ’em.
That said, please check out what I managed with Jorden’s and Alanta’s headshots. Not too bad if I do say so myself. Helped of course by the fact that both young women are incredibly beautiful, patient, and very experienced at having their picture taken (Jorden’s auntie is a photographer and Alanta was a beauty queen in her youth), but I was still amazed!
And thus I leave you. Enjoy!
