Images and some video from Thanksgiving Rocks, the Norwood High School – Norwood MA 2009 Comedy Show. And just remember – It’s hard to be a big turkey one day and then have to go to school the next. So, you know, there’s a lesson for you.
Norwood High in Norwood MA presents Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with all the songs, dances and comedy of the movie. There is no life I know, to compare with pure imagination … Living there, you’ll be free, if you truly wish to be. Come join the cast – Beginning on September 18, 2009
I admit, I am very, very lucky to be a photographer and to capture the images that I am blessed to have taken.
When it was said that the eyes are the window to the soul they were right. And when the actor is wearing a mask it is even easier to see how deep the soul really is.
It was actually a few years ago that I was asked to photograph Beauty and the Beast. The costumes and performances were great of course, but when I was looking through the images I was stopped dead in my tracks by this single image of the Beast.
It was “deadly” as they say. That one image that wasn’t posed, couldn’t be posed, will never be repeated and shouldn’t be.
The actor was in the moment and that makes us as audience members shiver.
I still to this day look at this image and think how lucky I was to be there. This is one of those images where we as photographers laugh and say “I wonder who stole my camera and shot that one?”
Shooting theatrical performances can be very intense. So much is happening. Stage right, stage left. I am constantly panning to be sure that I am capturing all of the expressions, the poses and the “acting” Recently I shot The New Prospect Players production of “The Man Who Came to Dinner”.
The whole cast was excellent. One member, Mary Ferrara was Miss Preen, the crazy, lazy nurse. Her policy for dispensing drugs was “one for you and two for me”
And what a poser , in the right way I mean. I knew that when she was on stage, that I would get some great shots
It’s all in who you have as a model, I just do my best to push the shutter at the right time
And here’s the multi-talented Mary as “Westcott”, the gruff radio show tech.
