Your community has community theater, and community theater needs photographs. I’m very grateful that several theaters in Ventura County allowed me to practice on their stages when I was learning my craft. When creating publicity images for theater, don’t scrimp on the drama. Use exaggerated angles and lighting, because the job of these photos is to GET ATTENTION. The editor of your local paper looks at photos all day long, and he or she wants the same thing you want: attention. Don’t be afraid to experiment. And you know what? Actors LOVE to act, so let them.
