I jumped at the chance to photograph the ‘house band’ during a performance of the pantomime ‘Cinderella’ at The King’s Theatre, Glasgow. After a short meeting with the band and their wonderful Musical Director, Pamela McLennan I was given unfettered access to shoot as I chose during the show.
Whilst Pam sat at stage level, the other band members were all located with line of sight to Pam in a dark subterranean ‘pit’.
They were lit only by the lights on their music stands and a little residual light spilling in from the stage above.
Photographically one of my most challenging projects to date with hardly any light to work with. I was pushing ISO’s above 10,000 and shooting f4 and 1/30s or less most of the time.
