Theatre Archival Photography and Videography
Theatre archival had been a major part of our work ever since we started our company in 2002. The productions have always intrigued us. Capturing beautiful images during rehearsals is never easy. How should we capture the scene? How are we able to depict the play according to what the directors had planned? Lightings, emotions, settings are all important aspects in capturing the essence of the theatre piece. Our images are not just for archiving but more for publicity in promoting the plays just before the actual performance. The selected images are usually published on social media or given to the press for write-ups about the up-coming shows. Hence the images must be able to capture the viewers and interest them in the play.
Theatre Archival – Photography
We especially enjoyed capturinging with the lighting. These are one of the unique situations where we can make use of the creative of the lighting designers and try to accentuate their intentions to help our images more compelling. The emotions, actions and movements of the actors is another important part of photography. We try to captured that fleeting moments when they interact with the sets and the lightings to create dramatic effects. I believe the interpretation of the photographer is important to create the captivating visuals for used in successful publicity. Here are some of our works that illustrate our ability to capture beautiful theatre visual.
Tuckys Photography had been capturing theatre performance for the more than 15 years. Are images have been used by our clients for various publicity and social media channels. They have been published in local press and used extensively in promoting the performance.
Theatre Archival – Videography
Besides photography, we are also doing video for theatre archivals. We used cinematic camera with high dynamic range. The high dynamic range helps in capturing high contrast scenes with more details. The range of exposured will be too high to be display. Many lighting designers used dramatic lightings with spot lights on the characters while still illuminating the rest of the sets and casts. The extra data from the high dymanic range cinematic camera will allow us to reduce the range of exposure on the monitor to as close to what our eyes can see in the actual performance. We will do colour grading during post processing of the footage to bring all the exposure back to within the range our monitors can display.
On top of that the colour grading will help in getting vivid, life-like visuals that is especially important for archiving theatre performances. Especially if these performance will still be viewed or re-viewed in years to come.
