"A Christmas Carol" rehearsal

It's time to fess up: I'm absolutely addicted to clean backgrounds and pretty available light. But I'm not alone. Most photographers can't get enough of these photographic drugs.

Below is a photo I shot yesterday at the beautiful Pabst Theater, downtown. It's part of a long-term project I'm working on where I've been following a few of our local residents and children through try-outs, rehearsals and eventually, performances, of this year's, "A Christmas Carol," presented by the Milwaukee Repertory Theater. In this photo, I set my exposure for the light shining down on Ebenezer Scrooge.

When we say, "clean backgrounds," we mean, no clutter. And by "available light," we mean, no flash. I've gotten scolded by past photo editors, but my flash rarely comes out of my camera bag. Bah humbug, I say to my flash!
