Visiting a puppet theater

As you may have noticed in the past few weeks I’m more and more attracted to documentary photography. Following intriguing people and things and capturing big and little particularities interests me more and more. The ice-fisherman I could accompany one afternoon at temperatures far below zero degrees Celsius, the lovely ladies at the pastry store “Naschkatze” who showed me how to make bonbons, or the Austrian National Library which I was allowed to shoot in its entire splendor with all its secret details.

This time it was a special joy for me to sneak into a puppet theater. I was allowed to take a glimpse backstage and even visit the basement of the in-house repair and tailoring department. I don’t know about you, but my photographer’s heart always beats faster in old repair stores with used working spaces, dots of color and crooked pictures on the wall.

Today I took my pictures again with my Sony Alpha 7 RII, the MC-11 converter (which I told you about in a recent more detailed review) and my SIGMA 24-70mm / 2.8 DG OS HSM Art lens. For this particular shooting I chose the Sony because it is compact and you can turn off the click sounds. I wanted to take pictures as natural and realistic as possible without getting noticed. The SIGMA 24-70mm / 2.8 DG OS HSM Art was a good choice as it covers all ranges I needed for this photo story while it spared me lens swaps.

How about you? What’s your favorite field in photography or do you prefer the change this subject can offer? I’ll be happy to hear what you’re doing! Just drop me a comment. 🙂
