My second job at Hertford Theatre this month, photographing Hertford Dramatic & Operatic Society‘s production of Tomb With a View by Norman Robbins.
The action takes place in the library of the family home, the gothic Monument House, represented by a box set.
The first and last acts are set during the evening, with the lighting reflecting the colour temperature and characteristics of artificial light. The second act is set during the day, and is both brighter and cooler.
There’s plenty in this production to keep the photographer busy, with eccentric characters and costumes and plenty of drama.
Tomb With A View runs at Hertford Theatre from Wednesday 23rd to Saturday 26th March 2011.
