April 3rd, 2016.
The Olivier Awards, which I first did in 2014, offer me the rare opportunity to showcase my complete ignorance of all things theatre-related... even more than London's two annual Fashion Weeks allow me to wallow in my ignorance of fashion as well!
Last year, at the 2015 Oliviers, I arrived too late to get a good spot in the Public Pen, so I shot the event from *outside* the event. This year, I brought in my Big Nikon camera, and then went into the office to pick up the Big Lens... only to realise the lens was at home, not in the office. So I had to photograph this whole event on the Pentax, using the kit lens I'd brought with me in case it rained. I also decided to compound the potential for this to be a bad thing by AGAIN shooting from outside the event.
With advance apology for the lack of culture I'm about to display (I'll see what I can do about pleading for help and loading up actual famous people later), here's how it went down:
So... that was a thing. And I won't lie... it was a thing. I'm just not sure what kind of thing yet. I'll let you know. (But tomorrow there's a theatre opening for Sunset Blvd that I will allow me to see how far my newfound Thee-ate-er Credz go) (a clue : not far)
Until Next time!
PS. If you want to know whenever I post a new premiere journal (or perhaps misguidedly dip my toes into the cold and unfamilar waters of Actual Culture), feel free to follow me on twitter @berndt2_photo or on facebook by clicking here
PPS. If you somehow use a search engine that rated my website higher than the official one (hey, even if staggeringly unlikely, it's still possible!), the Official Olivier Awards Site is here.
