Tales From the Set -Film & TV Still Photographer Guy D'Alema
Guy D'Alema is a prominent photographer for film and television, and here, he breaks down how he captured this intense image for CW's critically acclaimed new dramatic super-hero series "Black Lightning". Check out below!
“Black Lightning” © The CW : This image was captured around 2:30 am on the streets of downtown Atlanta for the filming of episode 2 of “Black Lightning”. There was little to no time to stage a photo with Cress (Black Lightning), so I had to grab this shot between takes. I was fighting the clock: between takes, the special effects team was watering down the street for the look Production wanted, while the Make-up and Wardrobe Department were adjusting his make-up and costume. That left me with 10 – 20 seconds to get a few frames clean of all these elements I could not have in the photo. Add to that, the director coming up and giving direction notes to Cress, while I was trying to get his attention to get a particular look from him that I needed. The production team’s clock was ticking on completing the night’s work - and that was their priority. So the Still photographer has to make the best images under very difficult situations.
