Today’s been an interesting show, with one guest arriving with a stack of large photographs and then proceeding to demonstrate with actions how to escape from various “stuff”! I was glad I was there to document this visually… I’ve not really talked about the technical side of stuff during the Fringe photography. One of the things I’ve been finding a little restrictive is the flash recharge time. After much pre-Fringe deliberation I decided not to buy a Speedlite, and just see how I got on with the built-in flash. It’s been acceptable, the theatre lighting isn’t ideal for portrait photography, but I’ve managed to get down to ISO400 so there’s minimal grain. I do think I’m missing a few good shots waiting for the flash to recharge, but I’m still capturing plenty of good stuff.
Anyway, today on the show we had: Elf Lyons, Swan; John Pendall, How To Escape From Stuff; Joe Sellman-Leava from Worklight Theatre, Fix; Anya Anastasia, Rouge Romantic. Today’s one-day-only guest co-host was Tom Stade. As always, a selection of photographs are below, with the full Fringe collection in one massive folder on my Flicker page.
