Shots on set: The Downbeat

I've finally got round to watching the epic Paris Texas by Wim Wenders. As I was contemplating the cinematography it jolted my memory of a short movie I shot on set for about this time last year. The film, The Downbeat, was directed by James Hills with Laurence Blyth as the DP. It's always felt a bit strange shooting stills on set as it almost seemed like you were stealing someone else's set up and lighting skills! But I guess like any aspect of the film and tv industry it's a collaborative creative effort. Plus I soon realised being a set photographer can be great fun but at the same time, pretty grueling work.
