Jo’s Blog of the day

I took this shot whilst working in the New Theatre Cardiff. It’s a very simple photo. The nature of light in theatre orchestral pits can be very contrasty. This can sometimes lead to real problems but in this particular instance the nature of the light created a sense of subject isolation.

The very limited/narrow depth of field also makes the viewer look toward the subject. Technically it was a real advantage to be be able to capture images using an electronic shutter. Using this meant that photographs could be taken in complete silence.
