I typically shoot in real time during one of the dress rehearsals. I find that this typically results in the most dynamic shots. I can also, of course, get good images during a pose-and-hold photo call that are more suited for designer usage. I am also a theatrical lighting designer so I also try to include shots that will be useful to the designers too. I tend to be in constant motion in order to find the most interesting framing though I am careful that I do not disturb the rehearsal.
