backstage: an actor prepares...


Hope you guys don't mind if I post a shot or two from the festival. Of course, my camera clicked when it had the time. 2 pictures stood out in particular. Here's Anne, my fellow Malaysian actor who was getting some make-up tips from our wardrobe mistress. We thought it was funny that she needed tips having been an actor for what seems like a century but the moment we heard Anne was getting tips from Pauline, all of us ran into the women's dressing room and started teasing Anne about it.

We really had some precious moments backstage. Thank heavens for the architects and contractors who had the common sense of having thick walls put up. The audience would've wondered where the sound of cackling was coming from every night. We were great onstage. However, we were a hooting riot off it!

This is stunning! It would make a great photo for a reportage about the festival. And a beautiful portrait as well!

Loving only beautiful shots and being an amateur, I can only say the usual compliments! ha ha... But yes, the colours are so real in this shot of yours. Makes it seems as if I was right there!

It is good to know about your work as an artist. Maybe because of the actor inside you, you're so good at depicting characters in your photographs. This backstage picture is spontaneous and tells a a story, that's what I like most.

Welcome back Edwin! Hope you had fun!

As always, you have a great way of capturing people, its like your invisible and able to catch intimate moments. Well, not "intimate", but you know what I mean! :)

I've stage managed a couple shows in community theater (really small place), and I remember always having to go in the dressing room to hush up the talkative actors. So, speaking for your stage managers.... SHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

I'm glad to hear that you enjoy your work so much. It's just too funny about the ultra thick walls!

Lovely shot of Anne. It seems like something you would see in National Geographic on the life of an actor...

Seating in the 5th row at the Drama Centre, is not as good as viewing the nice pictures taken here of Anne. ;-)
