December 3rd, 2014.
A mere two days ago I managed the seemingly impossible task of taking photos of just about everyone at The World Premiere of the third and final Hobbit film, but for this one I had a prime front-row spot. But in a related matter, sometimes adversity is required to accomplish great things.
This? Wasn't quite such a great thing. Here's how it went down.
A lack of faith in my efforts (and the K3's truly abysmal autofocus in the conditions) meant I elected to wait ten minutes for the stars to leave and have one last chance to photograph them properly, through the power of prayer more than technique...
So... that was a cold night, slightly frustrating but not unworthwhile. There are three premieres scheduled before this and Christmas, of which I'll hopefully be able to do at least two.
Until that time, it's another one for my "Archive of Movie Premires"
The last couple of which were:
- The Hobbit : The Battle of the Five Armies World Premiere - Jackson! Cumberbatch! Freeman! Armitage!
- Unbroken - Angelina Jolie!
- Paddington - Whishaw! Kidman! Broadbent!
Until next time!
