“Love Bites” is a Darwin Middle School production that I was fortunate to photograph. It was literally the last minute when Brian told me that their usual photographer was unable to come, so the call was made and I jumped at the chance. Remembering my days playing piano in the bands for some musicals, it was great to be able to watch an entire play from start to finish. Regrettably, having sold my old Nikon gear, I didn’t have the reach that I would’ve liked to get some close action shots that I can get from a 70-200 lens, but was able to get some pretty decent pictures at the end of it… even though most of it was manual focus… on a 50mm f/0.95… with fast moving action on stage!
Anyway, the kids were great and there were some standout performances, plus it was pretty funny… I hope I didn’t get in the way too much!
