Q: What is the best lens for theater photography?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

I bought these loupe magnifiers at an antique shoppe because I like the shape, the brass, and the lenses. I shot these on the kitchen counter by the window hoping to capture the light through and around them. Then I focused on the upper lens and let everything else find its place in the image.

A novel of intrigue and mystery lives within this image.

In the No Room for Squares photo essay.

    My aunt used to get after my watchmaker uncle for wearing his to the dinner table. He was old school Swiss trained. You had to make a watch that would keep accurate time completely from scratch as your final exam, even tempering the springs and turning the tiny screws. He had work right up to the day he died.
