CHINESE OPERA PERFORMANCE | NEW YORK, NY EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER

As promised, here are some photos of the behind-the-scenes workings during my shoot of the Cantonese Opera performance in Chinatown, Manhattan.  It’s really too bad the images can’t show the time necessary in which to create this look (several hours worth!) of intricate costuming and elaborate makeup..  My own parents are in some of the shots, and I’ve always been proud of them, for their dedication to this performance art.  Hope you enjoy the images!

 

Pretty detailed embroidery…

Testing some lighting using my lovely assistant for the day…

I LOVED getting the musician shots…
