Re: Remarkable settings - pictures from the episodes

Aw, thank you!  You too!  Love that shot… that whole house itself and the stately porch echoing all the way down was perfect… loved the same shot of Lara in it, too….

Oi…. there were so many times when first watching this (and ever after) when I just appreciated so much not only deciding how the scene would look, but their evidently creative attention to the camera… how close/far, what angle, etc..  such as when we first meet Sherlock, opening the body bag and upside down.  So many times the camera placement just 'made' it, plus the choice of lighting.  So I just loved that above shot how they introduced us to Mycroft.  Stuff like that.  Ahem…  but I'll hush…  just preaching to the choir, right?  ;P  ;P  ;D   Perfect thread to appreciate that…

Oh, oh and like Be posted previously, awesome when filmmakers use reflection in a good way, too…

Re: Remarkable settings - pictures from the episodes

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite threads.  It's right up there with the John and Sherlock picture thread.  Not only am I admiring the production value of the shots, I'm also admiring our Forum members for the artistic eye it takes to pick out these shots and grab just the right moment.  Well done!


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And I said "dangerous" and here you are.

You. It's always you. John Watson, you keep me right.

Re: Remarkable settings - pictures from the episodes

TBB is full of reflections... goes on to make some screengrabs http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Ok, TGG was in the drive, also one of Paul's and a nice reflection which makes a rather dull situation look so interesting.

Like this one....? 
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-vNMgwsoYfOA/UeNVpd8QdaI/AAAAAAAAEXI/Ac9cPgC5gCQ/s800/DisguisedAtMuseum.png

Ah...  symmetry symmetry symmetry.  And beautiful starkness again from once more having the camera be pulled back quite a ways, like so many others of my favorites (excepting the beautifully opposite cases of varying close-ups).

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-eQcgZ0c0wlM/UeNWeCTzqEI/AAAAAAAAEXY/9k1YJvGpPtc/s800/tumblr_lwv3uoAazO1qir7nao5_1280.png

Mm...  did someone say lighting and 'symmetry' again?    (when first saw it, I was also quite struck by the choice of fading that scene out by having the ceiling lights go out following the boys, one by one... remember?)   And totally agree, KP... it doesn't always come up as much as loving the actors/quality of the show as a whole, but I love the production/art of this show so much, too.  It's noticeable, when they pile it on in so many artistic ways, and in so many details, in every single ep!!  (but... ahem... not taking any credit for all the great screengrabs, though!  ;D  just a few from my huge folder of sherlock images collected over time from other people's screencap blogs since I love to look at them)

Re: Remarkable settings - pictures from the episodes

I think it especially wonderful how Sherlock and John are mirrored in the bank's polished marble walls:

http://up.picr.de/15210439bp.jpg


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
John: "Have you spoken to Mycroft, Molly, uh, anyone?"
Mrs Hudson: "They don’t matter. You do."


I BELIEVE IN SERIES 5!

Re: Remarkable settings - pictures from the episodes

Beautiful, all these fotos. You made my evening here in hot Italy at the moment (some shots really cool me down ). That´s exactly why I love that show: the compositions and the cooperations of ALL participating parties. I hope that the new directors are artists as well, a lot of that beautiful stuff came from the head of Paul McGuiguan.....

Re: Remarkable settings - pictures from the episodes

Oi.. yes...  forgotten about those reflections, too.  Love well done use of those... pardon for the repeat, I've posted this around before, not so much a 'settings' pic, but it simply remains one of my favorite shots of both the use of a mirror, and of the boys/that moment....

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Bz314r2kK_Y/UaggPxSJOsI/AAAAAAAAD8I/vjqXVz9GDqU/s480/seeyouinmirror.jpg


Aaannd...  ahhh....  before wonderful uses of reflections, we were talking about symmetry/balance in the shot?  Mind if I indulge in a bit of both?  I really can't help myself.....

Seriously.  Although to be fair, some of our favorite/gorgeous shots were also done by Euros or Toby!    But speaking of loving the use of balance in a shot, looking through the pics I've saved, many of them reminded me that 'un-balance' to a shot, or at least not always having your subject matter be in the center all the time, gives some awesome artsiness to it as well:

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-c-ywclSL41g/UeBiA7VpRLI/AAAAAAAAEVQ/W78EOgsNUGM/s400/SiPSherlockWindow.jpg


The great photographer's trick/style of pulling your eye into the landscape as well... I'm sure everyone loves this one....  right?

Re: Remarkable settings - pictures from the episodes

But no Paul?
I love him and his symmetry and also the epic ways the cameras take for effect. 
But since I have no say I just have to live with it http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png

It is Sherlock and probably it would be enough if any one pointed any camera at the actors and I would still be happy http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Remarkable settings - pictures from the episodes

Yes I thought Mark was very gracious on the Comic Com panel.  Singing the praises of Paul, but not going overboard, cos I'm sure the new guys will do fine!

Aw, was he?  I mean, I definitely agree with the second sentence, but haven't gotten to hear a whole lot of what was actually /said/ other than a couple one-liners about Series 3 and Moffat on his boys, and Doyle.  Even the little 'report' Sherlockology has put up so far just repeated the quips I heard from tweets... thankfully, someone here posted the video of the panel, but hard to catch everything, and love to hear any of the best tidbits.    For all the talk of Paul in here lately, though, it did remind me of a tweet I saw from him ages back about him and Ben starting work on the Epstein bio-pic, so at least you'll have that coming up....     But my bad... not quite the thread for this, other than all the love of his shots.. was just curious.   Must find a few more favorite shots soon.....

Re: Remarkable settings - pictures from the episodes

Hmmm..now won't it be interesting if this scene is mirrored in S3/E1.  John sitting quietly and alone after visiting Sherlock's grave. Then, who should come walking down the path, coat all a-swirl, back into John's life.....


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Re: Remarkable settings - pictures from the episodes

Oooh...    Seriously, yes.  Not seeing him right away, just a bit of that beautifully shifting lighting they like to use, a low angle of someone walking along... see the swirl of 'that' coat....  ;D   
And then -bam-, show us a glimpse inside, or through, one of their perfect settings... maybe not a symmetrical one (ha), but as far as their skill with fitting the scene and mood goes, I've been re-discovering/enjoying so so many wonderful dark and smoky shots in nearly all the eps, too, perfect for seeing a familiar face pass mysteriously through....   like here!
