The 2013 BAFTAs : Red Carpet / Monochrome

February 10th, 2013.

Of all the Baftas I've been to, the most memorable was probably 2013 : the one that was cold AND where it rained AND sleeted AND snowed. What's more, since that one, they've made most of the red carpet fully undercover, thus ensuring these kind of precise circumstancess are unlikely to recur.

Photographically, it was tricky. Dynamic range and detail reduce when there's more stuff in the air, and with bright lights shining on the carpet, the contrast is even more reduced. But all that aside, I still put these Baftas down as one of my favourites to photograph...

The 2016 BAFTAs : Red Carpet / Monochrome

Sometimes it's not about trying to write commentary in an attempt to be funny... it's just about the fact that I'm allowed to be in a public pen and take these kinds of photos, for which I'm actually really grateful...

Here's what I saw:
