I’ve never photographed a show at the Theatre Royal so I really didn’t know what to expect…I didn’t even know people played concerts there.
We had to kneel down at the front of an aisle and hope for a clear view…which we didn’t have. There was a small but perfectly placed table on the stage for her water bottle which she lurked behind for most of the first three songs.
Add to that some pretty ropey lighting and what could so easily have been an easy and a stunning gig to photograph was actually a bit of a faff. The shots turned out okay at best – mainly because there was very little light on her eyes, so they look like dark pits rather than eyes! Note to self – time to stop doing seated gigs where there’s no pit to move around in.
