Inherit the Wind – ACT 2

Henry Drummond tells Brady that they have drifted apart because Brady has stood still.

At the end of ACT I Henry Drummond tells Brady that they have drifted apart because Brady has stood still.

This is a follow up to yesterday’s post of a number of photos from ACT (a community theatre) and Trinity United Church’s co-production of Inherit the Wind.  Because the story is from 1925 and this production is designed to be of the same era, sepia photos seemed appropriate.

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 and a preset called ‘Antique Light.’
