The Comcast Newsmakers show set up on the stage of the Latchis Theater in Brattleboro, Vt., to interview several local “Newsmakers” for their program on Monday and Tuesday, January 14 and 15, 2013.
Local interviewees included Gail Nunziata of Latchis Arts, Jeff Lewis of the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation, Chris Campany of the Windham Regional Commission and several others including Massachusetts State Representative Paul Mark pictured here.
Interviews will air in early February on the Comcast Xfinity Network and will be available in the OnDemand section for comcast subscribers. Viewers can also visit www.comcastnewsmakers.com to see the interviews.
It was quite impressive to walk into the old main theater at the Latchis and see it professionally lit with dozens of lights. There were blue accent lights all along the walls lighting up each panel. There were large flood lights bringing in the red of the old theater seating and of course the rig of lights on the talent. You could smell the heat coming off of them. As a photographer, it was great to have all of the lighting already taken care of so I could focus on capturing the right moments.
Some photo geekery to share:
These images were shot with my trusty old Canon 40D and my Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. This is my typical “go to” set up for most shoots. As I said, it was all lit already so I didn’t need to use a flash for anything.
I was shooting at mostly at ISO 1600 and 1/60th of a second varying my aperture as needed.
