Second Year Cohort in the Limelight

Getting some exposure for my course’s second years..

The 2nd Year class completed a three day job of covering the Harold Jolliffe One-Act Play Festival on Saturday 14th April. The festival has been running since 1947 and gives local amateur production groups the chance to perform their play to an adjudicator, with a range of prizes to be won for the best.

With photographing the productions, the awards ceremony, and offering the actors and producers portraits, the whole event was a steep learning curve for all involved. Photographing from a small lighting booth, from the back of the studio, with challenging lighting conditions, needed a lot of thinking on our feet. Plus directing the actors for portraits after coming off stage into position needed quick judgement.

A great set of images were produced and the organiser, Ashley Heath is looking forward to the arrangement being a long-term partnership for the college.
