This gallery is composed of images from the Gwinnett Ballet Theatre's 26th Anniversary production season of The Nutcracker.
I have been asked many times to show more backstage scenes so I have included many shots from warm-up class before performance and backstage shots during performance.
None of these shots are posed. I lurk about backstage waiting on enough light to shoot. The dancers totally ignore me, thankfully! The performance shots are mostly taken during dress rehearsals.
There are also a few shots I made on stage during dress rehearsal shooting toward the audience.
All images were made with a Canon 5D at ISO 1600 and Canon Mark III at ISO 1600
