Set Designer's Life - Documenting the Work

One of the hardest parts of being a theater designer, in the rush of getting shows designed and realized, is remembering to document the finished design!

Usually this means photographing the show.

There are all sorts of technical problems in photographing a set.  For one thing, it's usually high and/or wide and an ordinary camera lens can't catch it all easily.  For another, sets look best under stage lighting, but those light levels are rather dim for the camera.
Today I hand over to the lighting designer - months late! - my photos of my The Traveling Lady set.
