Production of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Sara Loudon, who previously appeared on this blog in period dress, had her students at Covenant Christian Middle School perform the play The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.  Below are a few pictures I snapped.  


A faun introduces Narnia to Lucy

Two sons of Adam and two daughters of Eve

Aslan contemplates his imminent death, 
with only Susan and Lucy to accompany him

The girls are in awe of the risen Aslan


Believe it or not, I used my flash on the first picture, but not on the others.  I think what happened was the flash lit up the backs of people’s heads in the audience (which I cropped out), making the players in the first picture look darker by comparison.  I decided not to use my flash for the rest, with the resulting lack in contrast.  Live and learn.

It's fun to watch kids put on a play based on a book they have read. And The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is such a wonderful novel.

Oh that looks like a wonderful evening.

I've found not using a flash often takes a better photo, too. Don't use a flash when photographing through a telescope. You probably know that one though. :)

Nice photos, Mark! :)

Thank you for your comments.

M Pax: I once heard of someone using the flash on his ordinary camera while photographing the moon. To make a difference, the flash would have to be powerful enough to reduce the people around him to ashes.
