You may think that the title of this blog is tongue-in-cheek and perhaps it is just a bit, but the truth is this show is the complete package.  Wonderfully produced, Brüka’s offering of The Full Monty is easy to enjoy and high energy.

The first thing you notice is the complex and ambitious set, Brüka has always done well with the space that they have built for this production of The Full Monty they have pulled out all the stops.

Do you enjoy the questions more than the answers?

The Moment of Tension

img_6116-1

When capturing moments it is your choice as to which moment to capture. Not all moments are created equal and to know the difference is a skill that needs to be honed.

Observing the rhythm of the scene, be it a concert, a play, a wedding or pretty much any event is key in finding that split second of tension. Watching the players with intent will help in anticipating what will come. You can look through the view finder and focus on one part of the action but you will risk losing the moments you will not see out of your line of sight. Putting the camera down on occasion to see what the entire scene looks like is a good start, as well as resisting the urge to chimp.

Feel the rhythm my friends..

Photography is seeing the reality, manipulating the variables and creating your vision.

Photography is seeing the reality, manipulating the variables and finishing your vision.

Open your eyes, really see the world around you, see with your eyes and your soul.

Manipulate the variables, the mechanics of the camera, the variables of what you see and what you feel.

Finish your vision, the treatment (color B&W ect.), post or print.

Hide in plain site..

Follow your heart my friends ,,
