We recently photographed the Covington High School production of Waiting for Godot. After reading the Wikipedia entry on the play, I was a little less then enthusiastic about seeing the production. However, I quickly changed my mind after it began.
Waiting for Godot follows two days in the lives of a pair of men who divert themselves while they wait expectantly and unsuccessfully for someone named Godot to arrive. They claim him as an acquaintance but in fact hardly know him, admitting that they would not recognise him were they to see him. To occupy themselves, they eat, sleep, converse, argue, sing, play games, exercise, swap hats, and contemplate suicide — anything “to hold the terrible silence at bay”.
I’ve always joked with Gary about his dark, dark lighting, but I really love to photograph his productions. The lighting is very challenging to photograph well, with large dynamic ranges and a wide variety of color.
I look forward to his next play.
We’ve started putting our theatre photos back online. We’ve tried several different options, and I think we’ve finally settled with Zenfolio as our e-commerce/printing partner. You can get to our photos by clicking “Photography”, then “View/Order Prints” above.
It’s going to take a while to get them up, but we’re almost finished with the current season.
Here’s a short slideshow of some of our favorite recent theatre images.
