I’ve been doing a bunch of people related projects lately so I thought I’d share a few of the highlights. The one we’ll look at today is some of the images for two shoots for a friend of mine who does stand up. She had me come down to two different events in two different venues. You’ll be able to see the difference in the lighting since one venue has terrible lighting and the other had a fairly nice set up. The performer is Teresa Sheffield who I met through doing comedy skits for her company Chepookah Productions. The first night we shot in Greenwich Village Comedy Club where the lighting was extremely dark. The next night was in Broadway Comedy Club on the small stage where the lighting was much better. Teresa was a great subject as she moves around the stage, is very expressive, and brings a playful quality to her act that works well with the camera.
