The final day of shooting was actually a night shoot (so I'm posting this retrospectively) on the roof of a building in Fulham overlooking the Thames. I got some great shots of the skyline which I may post at a later date but skylines are ten-a-penny whereas shots of people lost in thought are so much more interesting.

There's a lot of waiting around on film sets; waiting for make-up, or lighting, or sound, or cameras to get ready, or even just waiting for the weather to do what you were promised it would do before you got all the cameras out, but then didn't. For me it was just more photo-opportunities (and fortunately most people didn't find me too intrusive!). Here, the make-up artist and main actress, Yulia, wait in the warmth while the crew set the lighting and cameras for a close-up outside.
