My Nikon camera came along with me for the some of the five night run of the play at The Nightingale Theatre in Brighton. I managed to curb my own nerves by taking backstage photos on the third and the last night of our performance. One of my favourite things about taking photographs backstage is capturing the different moods of getting ready, going over lines, mentally preparing or a state of elation. The best photographs for me are when people are completely natural and unaware they are being photographed.
