The Students of Skin Deep Rock Beacon Rocks

clock July 19, 2010 20:56 by author Amber

Different kinds of shows require a different kinds of results. When I shoot play, there are times I can almost predict where the action is happening and where it's going to go so I can get the shot when it happens. Shooting a live dance performance can be another beast all together and American Tribal Style belly dance, a form of belly dance built around group improvisation, is no exception. Of course when you trade out theater lights for the harsh rays of the sun, capturing that perfect photo becomes that much harder.

On July 11th, I had the honor of following the Students of Skin Deep around with my camera as these talented rocked the Beacon Rocks street festival.


SHINE: A Burlesque Musical

Tonight I had the pleasure of photographing the new musical, SHINE: A Burlesque Musical, which opens tomorrow and runs through the 18th. The story is fun, sexy, and at times, very touching. The music varied, addicting, and I want the sound track! From the website:

Internationally-acclaimed comedy cabaret duo The Wet Spots, John Woods and Cass King, in collaboration with Theatre Off Jackson and the Seattle Erotic Art Festival, will present 12 performances of SHINE: A Burlesque Musical July 8 to 18, 2010 at the Theatre Off Jackson.  A recent winner of a Vancouver Ovation Award for “Outstanding New Work”, SHINE is a tassel-twirling original, full-book musical about an infamous burlesque theatre and the family of talented misfits who try to save it from demolition… or worse, respectability.
