You know that feeling when you trip the shutter and you just know you got something great. But you don't REALLY know until you see it on the back of the camera. Yeah, this was one of those moments.
It was a night shoot for Doctor Who in the woods near Cardiff. As night shoots go it was fairly pleasant - it wasn't raining and it wasn't too cold. I think we were well into the early hours when I shot this. They only did it two or three times, but when I got this I knew I had something special. Obviously as a unit photographer working on set, I'm totally dependent on how the director and the cinematographer decide to set things up. Its up to me to find the position, the angle and the moment that work best as a still.
It pictures like this that keep me excited to shoot every day.
Every shoot starts with an empty memory card and the possibility of capturing something great.
