Backstage

There are few things I love to photograph more than backstage. At a concert, talent show, or possibly my favorite – plays and ballets, I’m in heaven. There’s always drama, especially if we’re talking teenage girls, make-up, dramatic lighting, nerves, and if I’m lucky, costumes.

Thursday I spent most of my afternoon/evening with a student at the York County School of Technology who was getting ready to show her fashion design work. Out of nowhere the cosmetology students walk by with their hair models and as if in a dream I suddenly found myself backstage surrounded by wild hair with a big grin on my face. Technically this was not my assignment but there was no way I could pass this up. I mean, come on. Look at that hair!
