So I got called in this week by my good friend Chris Biddle to take pictures of his new burlesque show Peekaboo. Thursday evening was their last dress rehearsal before the show and he really needed to get portraits of 4 cast members who did not have a good Halloween headshot.
So here are those 4 shots in no particular order...
It's awesome to get asked to do black and white. I learned photography on black and white film, and most of my favorite images are black and white (I know its cliche, but works from Weegee, Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier Bresson). When I'd work in the dark room I used to love the photos that had true blacks and true white, grays are important but I really like to emphasize the extremes.
This show looks great, I hope you get a chance to see it. I'll post some show pics soon after the show opens and is into it's run.
