Performing Arts Photography

Performing arts photography poses several technical challenge as most stages are purposely lit for the show – not for photography, while the use of flash is forbidden. This requires using high ISO camera setting which in turn may create grainy (pixelated) images. Setting the camera with a wide open aperture is a must in low light situations thus limiting the depth of field in the photos. The availability of a suitable position for the photographer further restricts the angel and height from which photos are taken. In addition, stage performers are moving quickly so require fast reaction while focusing the camera becomes another challenge. The photographer has to be able to quickly understand the dynamics on the stage and proactively seek the best angles from which to capture the best photographs.
