It’s In The Photograph

I like behind-the-scenes photos and videos because I think it’s interesting to see how things work. I also like fun shots that are taken around the set.

As of late, I seem to have developed a fascination with photos that show the filming/photographing itself, cameras-taking shots of cameras-taking shots.

I didn’t realize how much I apparently like this, until I was looking through my Dan Stevens folder and saw how many of these types of pics I have saved.

I’m not sure why I’m so drawn to these ‘camera’ pictures.

Behind-the-scenes pics put the make-believe on hold while reality momentarily returns for a short time, whereas the shots of cameras have reality and make-believe running alongside each other.

When I was young I had a view master that showed a scene from Disney’s Fox and The Hound. Todd & Copper were playing on a log in the distance while some shrubbery in the foreground made it seem like I was really there watching it all play out. I loved that slide!

I guess these camera shots are kind of like that. I see Dan playing a character or doing press for a character, while the cameras are the bushes I’m hiding behind.


Bonus: pictures of Dan taking pictures

    1. yes, to be able to block out all of the equipment/people, not to mention all of the stops, starts, and repeating of a scene; I have a great respect for anyone who is able to do that day in and day out!
