Photographing Richard III

I wandered down to see Shakespeare By the Sea’s production of Richard III this weekend at Pt Fermin Park. It’s a fun show with lots of powerful moments. And since I happened to have my 70-200mm with me, I took some pics.

Photographing performances is way different from doing landscape art photos. It’s in real time and the moments come and go fast. But in a past life, I worked with a touring Shakespeare company, got an MFA, and did lots of acting and directing. So capturing moments in a play is a particular pleasure.

Richard III will be at Pt Fermin next weekend as well. The early comedy, Love’s Labour’s Lost, will be done there over 2 weekends in August.
