Ann Richards ©1994 Kirk Tuck
I worked late last night photographing the new play about Ann Richards that's opening at Zach Theatre this week. Usually I can post fun images from the play the day after I shoot them but this production is different and my public relations manager asked me not to post images until after they are approved by the production company. I started to post one image from last night and quickly removed it when I got the e-mail from P.R. Too bad, because I wanted to show off the capabilities of the new Sony a6300 as I experienced them on a real job.
Instead, I thought I'd go straight to the original source and show a photograph I did of the real Gov. Ann Richards, right in front of the Texas Capitol, holding a bouquet of yellow roses.
I'll share the production photos from the play when we get the green light.
Hope your week is off to a great start.
By the way, the play should be a great experience, especially for people who were active in Austin and Texas politics in the early 1990's. What a time!
Additional edit at 4:04pm. I dug around and found the original, full frame version of the above image and I like it even better than the cropped one. Here it is:
