These are a few of the production photos I took for University of Central Missouri’s production of The Birds. Due to the nature of multiple things happening on stage at once and the use of acrobatics (the birds flew across the stage, meaning that even certain staged shots had to be moving), I asked Dr. Mollenkamp (the director), if my fiance, Isaac Flint, could help me out in shooting these production shots. Since he’s more familar with the Rebel XS, I shot with the 30D. I gave him the shorter lens, letting him take the wider, full scene shots, whereas I went for the more troublesome closeups. I think about thirty of the hundred-some pictures I turned in to the threatre were shot by him.
