Emilie Autumn @ El Rey Theatre

I was highly impressed with Emilie Autumn’s live cabaret performance at El Rey Theatre, in support of her Fight Like A Girl (F.L.A.G.) Tour.

I knew going into it that I would come away with great shots, and if you know my work beyond concerts and musicians you’ll know that I also have a penchant for corsets and lingerie.  However, little did I know I was to expect her to put on a full theatrical performance with three of her all-female backing band.  Not only did I get great shots, but I got great shots of four different ladies putting on a full Victorian-gothic cabaret.

PHOTOGRAPHER’S NOTES:  Wow, I got a lot of great photos.  Too many to fit into one post.  I attribute this to a few things — other than the obviously elaborate costumes:  One, the lighting was fantastic.  I was surprised an intimate stage venue like the El Rey Theatre could pull off such great, robust lighting to complement the performance.  For another, there was no photo pit so I relegated to shooting from within the crowd or over their heads.  This forced me to get creative with my angles and lens choices.  But it also meant that I could capture the entire performance, which included costume and prop changes.
