Spent a very happy and productive day shooting stills on location for Instruments of Darkness. Some great people, and we got a lot done. Shooting stills can be frustrating at times as you’re pretty much always at the very bottom of a long ladder of priorities. I’ve no problem with being eighth fiddle on a shoot, the most important thing is getting the job done, but it can be tricky when everyone wants and needs great images, but no-one wants you getting in the way. This shoot was a joy however as the director was very keen to have good stills and the whole crew was very accommodating.
Fortunately I shoot fast, so I managed to get a lot more pictures than they were expecting without treading on anyone’s toes.
