Christmas lashes

"Eyelashes and makeup applied, actress Heather Hansen, who plays "Topper's Girl" adjusts her costume before opening night of "A Christmas Carol" at Hale Center Theater in Orem, Wednesday, Dec. 23, 2009. Often lauded as the "second greatest Christmas story ever told," Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" is playing at the Hale Center Theater in Orem."

Actors are always nice people. But I wonder if they're just acting?

Yesterday afternoon, I hung out for a little over an hour shooting actors and actresses prepare for "A Christmas Carol" at Hale Center Theater in Orem.

They were very open and gave me all the access I could ever want. Yes, even in the ladies dressing room. No, they were clothed. Get your mind out of the gutter.

I split my time between the men and women, and even popped my head into the lighting design control room.

It was interesting, to say the least, as these folk got into character. From an average person I'd see on the street transform into an entirely different person was awesome.

I've shot stuff like this in the past, but couldn't pass up the moment when she kept adjusting her dress. I loved her long [fake] eyelashes and the warm hues, color of her makeup.
