hi I'm Dan Reineke with unknown media and today I'd like to share a few tips with you on how to do theatrical photography now first and foremost if you're ever at a theater and you're taking photographs don't ever have your flash on this can not only distract the the viewers but it can actually distract the actors in the performance as well another good tip is to make sure to have a lens that will actually open up quite a lot because you never know what the Lighting's gonna be in there and if it's too dark you may not get a shot now your position is also very key what I would suggest is getting a lens that you can have that will zoom in far enough that you can stand in the back of the theater and you can still get a very good tight angle on the on the actors to themselves and always being dead center is never a bad option mainly because the actors they're always giving their performance out to the audience so you're never going to get a too unflattering angle on the performers themselves now that was just a few tips for taking pictures at a theatrical performance I'm Dan Rennick II take your best shot
