These are some of the front of house pictures I took for UCMO theatre department’s production of The Three Musketeers. It was an excellent show, and both me and my fiance thoroughly enjoyed it. With its comedy interspersed between the tragedy, and fun-to-watch swordplay involved, The Three Musketeers has been one of my favorite productions to watch at UCMO.
Production Photos and stage combat practice photos coming soon.

Considering the weather hasn’t been particularly favorable for taking studio lights outside, and I don’t particularly like lugging around a twenty pound Vagabond, I decided to do my alien bees photoshoot indoors. And to do something different than I normally do for portrait class, I rounded up my friends and asked them to be part of a group photoshoot- one where we played to the idea of “If our life was a movie.”
You can see all the fun and games on the Flickr Slideshow, but here are the best seven, each with its own star of the show.

Last weekend I asked Joe and Cherise if they were interested in being the couple for my assignment. Luckily it turned out that we had great weather on Saturday, and the lighting was perfect for what I wanted (long shadows, warm lights). We went out to the park on Holden and Lion’s Lake, starting around 4:30pm. I was particularly interested in the light I expected to come at around 5:10 pm, and it came as hoped.
I also brought along Isaac, my fiance, as photo-assistant, as well as a Canon 580ex Flash. (Which I had read the manual just before the shoot). I built a softbox out of white posterboard and wax paper (Isaac’s idea for the wax paper diffuser) and put that on the flash. While the flash worked, it was nice lighting. Unfortuanetly something caused the LCD to start flickering and it stopped firing, so I had to put it away after the first few poses. It was nice while it lasted. Over Spring Break I plan to learn more about how to use it.
Anyways, these are the resulting pictures, using Photoshop CS4 and Lightroom 2.

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.

These are the front of house photos I took for University of Central Missouri’s production of The Birds. The play was directed by Professor Mollenkamp, and was their first enviromental play. The costumes and staging was all recycled or reused, and the audience sat in the round to watch the acrobatic antics as the story unfolded. I used the on-camera flash, covered with a piece of clear plastic to soften it for the tech photos, and alien bees for the cast photos.
I intend to upload the production photos in the next couple of days.
