Advice for shooting in theatre against the lights?
Feb 19, 2013

I need to shoot someone on a stage in a theatre with the audience in the background. I.e. against the way you would normally shoot someone on a stage. I'll mostly likely only have a couple continuous lights plus the stage lights and the house lights. (But I'm open to other suggestions that I can understand and obtain in the next day.) The problem I'm facing is that I would like to get some detail from the seating area, which will be difficult, in a large theatre, to light well. I'm thinking that perhaps I could do an HDR, if my subject stays very still? Does anyone have advice for setting up such a shot?

Thanks!
