I’ve been shooting rehearsals of Inherit the Wind for the past couple of weeks. For posterity. For social media advertising. The show is being jointly produced by ACT (a community theatre) and Trinity United Church, Charlottetown PEI. This is ACT’s 50th production in its 19 years. And Trinity is celebrating it’s 150th anniversary this year.
The play is set in a town in the southern USA and is about the real “Scopes Monkey Trial” of 1925 which took place in Dayton Tennessee.
The pictures are more or less in order from the first act of play.
All photos shot with a Pentax 50mm prime lens on a crop sensor (equivalent to 75 mm) with a Gitzo tripod in available light. The light available was the church’s “stage” lighting. Aperture was f1.4, most shots at 1/60 second and ISO varies from shot to shot. Much use was made of Lightroom’s adjustment brush to tone down shiny bald heads and faces and some white shirts.
