Sir Ian McKellen – portraits
May 16th, 2014
I had a very exciting (and somewhat terrifying) day. Being invited to photograph Sir Ian McKellen was quite scary. Even more scary when I arrived to find a completely blacked out theatre with no natural light. I find the best way to photograph somebody you have never met is when they are doing what they do best so here are my favourite shots of Sir Ian performing a soliloquy. There was absolutely no need to be terrified either, he was very funny and charming and I had a great time. I shot these with my 70-200mm lens on f2.8 with very high ISO. No flash only available light.
