Cee’s BNW 2 different things photo challenge

Had to delve into the archives for this one – great topic though! The power of twos!

This was a shot I took of a mother and son at a christening. I thought it was such a sweet image despite its graininess.

Image I took in Australia some years back. Decks should always come in 2s, if not you’re not a real dj!😊

Couple’s shoe shot. Would have liked to have taken a wider shot so I could make it more panoramic so that the composition compliments the eye a bit better.

Two sleeping lions…think it says it all  😄

Save the date pics I did for my friends. It was a lovely winging it session. Images came out beautifully – blog about this coming soon!

When I saw these 2 empty chairs I loved the composition. I was travelling on a boat hence the off centre shot  🙈 (dont judge me! Lol) 

Well there you have it, my rendition of this challenge. I hope it was enjoyable. Any comments, reviews, critism is much obliged 😋

All about BTS

I love shooting Behind The Scenes (BTS) shots.  You often have to act fast and think quickly to get the most out of the time you have.  One should see an yet be unseen, hear and yet be unheard.

The selection of shots I’ve posted here were taken at various different events, film set, event stage and rehearsal studio.  I usually like taking BTS shots in black and white as there is normally low lighting and using a flash sometimes is prohibited.  In the edit you can usually remove any graininess (if that’s even a word but I think you all know what I mean!) and can make the image more crisper by modifying contrast and tones.  I think shooting in black and white creates that ‘exclusive’ and ‘unseen’ feel.

I believe when taking BTS shots one should capture the moments, feelings, mood and the action of the particular situation. Proper Mi5 stealth mode stuff! (Maybe that’s why I like it so much) 🙂

It helps to have a tripod because of the low lighting, but you can easily find something to rest the camera on if you don’t have a tripod.  Close ups work well but wide shots also capture more of the scene so have fun and see what works best for the shot.
