Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin
I spent an hour and a half earlier today trying to deal with this venue in mid-morning sunlight and changing cloud cover, one 8x10 and three different 7x17 attempts. The first problem is that there are a whole bunch of different elements that make this theater a delight to encounter from the road, but they are spread all over the map. Pick out just some of the stuff, and it's only generic. All or nothing, to get the sense of this venue. Perhaps because the light got worse, not better, this very first "scouting shot" frame gets a lot of what I needed, though certainly without organizing it enough. What I'm afraid of is that the harsher light later on will have kept me from getting quite what I wanted. Very late day light would be better, but the way the theater sits on the points of the compass makes me think no light would ever be perfect. I made "an executive decision" not to spend the entire day waiting to see if the light would be better in the evening, and moved on to the next venue.
