PHOTOSHOOT: Phantom Of The Opera

Photoshoot by Adrian Patrick for the upcoming "Phantom of The Opera" on images to enlarge.. Last Sunday we had Access to The Grand theatre in Blackpool for two hours to conduct a Photoshoot for Lytham Academy of Theatre Arts' upcoming "Phantom Of The Opera". It was a lot of set-ups to get through, featuring the entire cast in costume and covering various scenes from the show, so a bit manic, but we just about managed it! The show itself will be at Lowther Theatre in Lytham 19-22 November. The use of The Grand Theatre afforded us a brilliant location to theme our photography appropriately. The only lighting available at The Grand was the dimmed house lights. We didn't have access to the stage lights unfortunately, so we had to get creative with our external flashes and light stands. One of the hardest things about a shoot like this is setting up our lighting super fast for each shot! We don't always get it exactly right when working at such a speed, but mostly it works out great and it gives us the chance to really play with colour. Something we love!
