Starting out at Camden Town Hall early in the afternoon and finishing at midnight on the Lady Daphne sailing barge. This was a challenging shoot, particularly shooting on the deck of a moving barge, lit only by ambient light from the buildings lining the banks of the River Thames.

With a number of old Canon FD mount lenses gathering dust, this adapter piqued my interest. The old Canon lenses feel much more solidly built than some modern lenses, but is this enough to compensate for the lack of auto focus and vibration reduction? Perhaps not an issue on the 50mm lens, but no VR on a 70 - 150mm lens (effectively 140 - 300mm on a Micro Four Thirds body) could be a pain to live with.
Watch this space for a side-by-side comparison of images shot with the Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 and Panasonic 14-45mm f/3.5 - 5.6 kit lens.
With two models to shoot in just four hours, and make-up eating a sizeable chunk of that time, things were pretty hectic in the studio. Several lighting setups and outfit changes later, here are the results.

Filming the works was challenging for a number of reasons - ever changing weather conditions and working into the evening with very little light outside of the construction area to name a few. With the marshland being open to the public, there was always the risk of curious dog walkers, hikers and even the occasional grazing sheep stepping into the camera's field of view. Filming locations were carefully selected to minimise this risk.
The dramatic moment the explosive charges were triggered. Shot from a safe distance on Penrhyndeudraeth railway platform.
A few shots from the show.
