Dress rehearsal

Last night, Christa and I photographed a dress rehearsal for the local production of “Steel Magnolias.” She took pictures from the second row, ground floor, while I shot mostly from the balcony. I used the 70-200mm telephoto; I had Christa shoot with either the 35mm or the 50mm, both prime lenses. This was the “two-shooter” method sometimes employed by Richard and his wife, Abby. It might have been overkill on this assignment, but it did take some of the pressure off me. (Christa wound up getting two of her photos on today’s front page.)

The assignment was not very challenging from a technical standpoint, though we both shot as well as possible. She was pleased with the results from the prime lenses; the telephoto once again responded brilliantly.

Metadata: f/2.8, 1/125, ISO3200, shot using the 70-200mm telephoto
