(FLASHBACK) : The 'Inglourious Basterds' 10th Anniversary in RedCarpetMonochrome

July 23rd, 2009 / 2019.

Ten years ago today, I was able to photograph my first Quentin Tarantino premiere. It wasn’t an easy premiere, either - we had an out-of-town event to go to first for work. Ahhhh…. those were the days when it seemed you could still accomplish more than one thing on a day that a premiere took place!

Here’s how it was, re-edited (the original : colour-with-commentary journal is here) :

So… that was that. And I was lucky enough to photograph the premieres of ‘Django Unchained’ and ‘The Hateful Eight’ as well. Here’s hoping that rumoured ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ ends up being real in the next week or so…

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...

So that was one of the more interesting BAFTAs - it was cold, it was wet.... and yet while shoooting I didn't notice either of those two things!
