In Fog And Falling Snow - Cast workshop, update

I've been to a couple more cast skills workshops for the In Fog and Falling Snow production since my previous post and it has been great to see not only the play itself slowly start to unfold - the characters, the storyline and so on - but also see the volunteer cast and crew develop both individually and as an ensemble. 

It's been great to see people's personalities start to shine through as they become familiar with each other and the task in hand, and to start thinking about who is going to move into which roles. On which note, the cast skills workshops ended last week and we are starting to move into rehearsals proper, with people being allocated distinct roles or areas they'll be working on. 

Photographically, I am aware that I have moved on from the initial, more mechanical challenges of trying to capture the action, deal with the lighting, try not to get in the way(!) and so on, into thinking more about the play and its story, and the people and their personalities. I'm now concentrating more on trying to capture the key moments that help build up the overall narrative, focussing on quality over quantity. Here are some of my more recent photos. The full set is on my Flickr page.
