32/365 - Troupe Up Close

Wide angle photo of some silly and colorful improvisers

I did something unusual (for me) today -- I did portraits! Specifically, I did publicity photos for The Troupe.

The Troupe is Michigan Tech's student improv group -- the place where I really started my work in improvisation and theatre (which I now use extensively in my own teaching). I've since retired, but as an alumnus, I usually do publicity shots for free. However, this isn't to say that I'm any good at them! I don't normally do much in the way of portraits or group shots -- heck, I don't even own my own external flash (I had to borrow one for this shoot). But, my wide angle lens and some funny lighting did give the group just the wacky look that they were looking for.
