This was a fleeting moment. I'm glad I was decisive enough to release the shutter (this is the only shot I got), as she turned away to talk to her fellow actors right afterwards.

Taken: Sunday, 21st March, 2010
Focal length: 50 mm
Shutter speed: 1/45 sec
Aperture: F1.4
ISO: 3200
Notes: The warmth is a naturally warm from the incandescent light, with the bluer, outdoor lighting her from the right. DRAMA(tic) light indeed. LOL. How fitting for a stage actress. This is handheld, but if I remember correctly, I think I used a doorframe to prop my camera or body against. I'm glad I had this on ISO 3200 (maybe 1600 would have worked, considering this is +1 EV, but no time to adjust), as I might have had camera shake, and lost the image entirely. The 100% crop is in my gallery.
