The second day we were in France, Tina and I did a little self-timed photo shoot in the apartment we rented while we waited for Luis V and Becky F to show.
We posted this image to Facebook and Instagram yesterday, and it did well with likes and comments.
One comment was, “Wondering what Jeremy is thinking at the time the shutter went off.”
I was thinking about looking “natural” while trying to make sure light was hitting my face. Tina blocked it in a few other shots, which is easy to do.
There are actually a few shadows on our faces that I had to airbrush out.
But you’d be surprised how much work actors have to do to make sure they aren’t blocking their co-actor’s faces. Often when two people face each other, the two people aren’t directly in front of each other. They are staggered.
It was more obvious in older movies, but I suggest integrating looking for the ways actors do this in the next movie you watch. It’s a fun game.
