Musings on Photography

More Elizabethan

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul Butzi on June 14, 2010


Last week I was down in Ashland again. My friend Bill and I got another chance to photograph in the outdoor Elizabethan theatre (aka the ‘Lizzie’), this time without protective tarps. It’s truly an amazing space, and I’m tremendously grateful we’ve been granted such great access.

    Looks like lens flare at the very top middle and bottom, or was it drizzling?

    Yes, lens flare. The 24mm ts-e is fairly resistant to flare but a theatre is insanely difficult lighting when the house lights are up and work lights are up, too. In this case, there was a big rehearsal flood almost directly above the camera. In some cases I can shield the lens using something (e.g. my hat) as a flag, if I’m remembering correctly this exposure was done with a fair bit of front rise, which makes using a flag/gobo hard to do without it intruding into the frame.

    Like the lead-in balustrade and the use of the wide angle. Get one “into” the picture, as it were.
