Notes on the photos of VLF 6’s Huling Habilin ng Sirena

Photography, Theater By August 12, 2010 Tags: , , , , No Comments

I just really had to write about what I thought of the photos from this particular play and my experience in taking them. This play was the so far, the hardest of all the plays to photograph, for the sole reason that it was too dark. When I do post-processing, I actually just move the curves. That is just basically what I do all the time. For this set however, I had to Despeckle too every now and then. I thought about adjusting the Brightness, but I found out that adjusting the Brightness only made the photos more glaringly red – which was painful to the eyes. In the end, I opted not to.

Virgin Labfest 6 Photos: Sa Package Counter (Set C)

I saw Set C twice (though missed Suor Clara and about half of Package Counter) but this was the reason I have two angles for this play (as well as the next one, Matyag). These photos were taken on the June 24 and July 2 3pm shows.
