Documenting the creativity of others is really what theater work is about. Finding that actors moment and being able to capture the emotion. Sure it sounds easy but every job comes with more than its fair share of challenges. Othello was definitely one of those shows.
A dark show with minimal lighting challenges any photographer. Dark lighting means slow shutter speeds, shallow depth of field and high ISO. Add to that that no motion can be seen in a photo, and actors who don't always hit their mark, doesn't leave for many options. These are the shows where the more dress rehearsals the better, but rarely is that an option.
As challenging as they are they can provide great images with lots of drama and mood.
