Mousetrap at The Rat Trap, Swindon

Todays photo shoot was with the cast of the long running Agatha Christie play The Mousetrap which is due to play at The Wyvern Theatre Swindon next February. Where else could it take place but at The Rat Trap Pub in Stratton. And of course a nice bunch of people they were as well.

It was very very sunny outside and so made shooting outside not as easy as it could have been (and it was cold). Inside of course was no problem. I also used my Nikon d800 for the first time. Can anybody see the difference between the two cameras, which shots are on which camera??

Another enjoyable few hours I reckon.

The 39 Steps Swindon Wyvern Theatre

Last week I was one of the photographers at the photo call for The 39 Steps at The Swindon Steam Museum The production of one of the World’s Favourite Comedies is being put on at the and by The Swindon Wyvern Theatre from the 4th to the 9th of February.
The photo shoot was so much fun. The two members of the cast were Richard Ede and Charlotte Peters, they were such fun to work with, knew exactly what was required by us and made it a very pleasurable experience.
Technically it was quite difficult as it was quite a dull day outside and so there was very little natural light coming through the roof and so flash was a must. I dont really like using flash but I do think in this case it worked out quite well and I was pleased with most of the results.
If you get the chance book up and go to see the production, it looks like a lot of fun.
