Shame we didn't get to see the full costume rehearsal, it looks a stunning show in these pics
Yeah ! Brian, ... first thing I looked for was EXIF and not really disappointed, you have to keep some Commercial Secrets also he would not want to "post camera/lens brand" because of sponsorships and "gifts of kit"

I imagine he had a shoot set up - and lighting more appropriate in some shots - for specific Posters and magazine/the programme printing also, just a little thing but he does have shed loads more experience of this light/subject/environment that us 1st timers and, frankly if Cookies were not better than ours - he could be out of a job

However, it made me, feel better about my images

Re: Nutcracker Rehearsal 10th December

John, you probably have a harder task as the "audience" will likely be more critical (and vocal)!

John, yes - no images of a Ballet dancer with hands or feet or head incorrect (or other errors) are permitted to be published understandable, we were Especially Privileged by Olympus to be able to photograph a Rehearsal at all !

and the Production is Copyright to Nutcracker and ENB so we are also very privileged, to get up to 10 approved images each !

Err, no! We are lucky not to have any issues with parents who don't want their children to be photographed. Publishing images online could destroy that trust, which has been built over quite a few years. It's illogical, I know, but there is a strong possibility that at least a few parents would object to general publication. Once my images have been processed they are loaded onto disks and passed to the drama group leaders for distribution to the parents. It's a lot of work for a limited audience but nevertheless quite rewarding, just a shame I cannot share them here.

ooh that is a sad sad symptom of todays Parents they post zillions of naked or half naked images of their children on holidays on Facebook etc., (social media) and by emails ... but you cannot post here ...

best they flood the internet for Christmas with your images

Re: Nutcracker Rehearsal 10th December

Yes John, let the parents post them all over social media. Then they can use them as Christmas cards. Vistaprint are running TV ads over here suggesting using photos from facebook for Christmas cards, no mention of copyright or obtaining permission of course.

I see that there are still only 15 images approved - this was obviously one tough gig!

Yes ! lots of people in the post show meeting were moaning that the light was awful with no AF assist and no flash it was a massive challenge

BUT I think the reason no further images have been Approved, is because Theatreland is like publishing ... slow to start in the morning, especially Monday after a 'heavy' weekend

With luck some more shall be approved later today I know two Peeps who have submitted images ps I am still sooo excited at even being there

Re: Nutcracker Rehearsal 10th December

I hope I'm wrong but I'm beginning to wonder if any more will be approved as "Cookie" reckoned he would have no problem in rapidly scanning through and approving all the images in a short space of time

There could be in excess of 400 images loaded for approval but the only ones so far showing seem to be either by the professional (Sisi Burn) or those who I believe were associated with running the event

(Hopefully you are right Chevvy )
