When I found out that Lichfield Musical Youth Theatre were taking on Les Miserables I knew instantly I was in for a treat when I was asked to come back to photograph more incredible moments from this talent young cast.
What made this shoot even more spectacular was the setting. WOW! Lichfield Cathedral was absolutely the perfect backdrop to this dramatic, emotional and captivating piece. As a photographer I couldn't ask for much else, with stunning lighting contrast, colours and plenty of diverse positioning on the stage that created perfect compositional opportunity.
I am still blown away every time I see this group. I saw Lichfield Musical Youth Theatre in rehearsal a few months ago, and seeing the transformation from then to the stage is wonderful. As a photographer I enjoy being pushed technically, as Les Mis and Lichfield Cathedral at times together created very dark and dramatic scenes. This made me work, particularly with having to build in my own additional lighting without distracting the cast.
A professional show and cast at the highest quality, I wish them all the best throughout the remaining shows this week! What an amazing soundtrack to work to.
