Capturing the perfect moment from ‘One Night for One Drop’

One Night for One Drop rehearsal | Mandalay Bay | January 30, 2014 | 12:19 p.m.

For photographers, most assignments have time restrictions. Schedules need to be kept, so we work fast, covering the basics and then working the scene in finer detail if time permits. For One Drop, I was informed that we would be viewing a five-minute segment of the show and only that; a second run-through was possible but not guaranteed. I quickly surveyed the theater for good vantage points and got both cameras ready with different lenses. Once the rehearsal began, I hardly noticed the time passing. I tried to capture moments instead of images, and the visually intriguing nature of the show made it easy—if a bit too quick.
