The Great Expectations Premiere was held last night as part of the 56th BFI London Film Festival and this was the closing film premiere for this film festival event. There was big turnout in celebrity terms as you would expect.
Helena Bonham Carter (Tim Burton’s other half) was the star of the show and in red carpet terms she stole it and looked very much on the money in a black and white number
The film stars Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes and Jeremy Irvine. We have some names here!
Basically the over riding question was this:
“Are you willing to stand in Leicester Sqaure on a miserable Sunday afternoon in the rain for hours for the likes of Helena Bonham Carter and Famefad.com visitors and risk shorting out the camera in the process? The answer was a “Yes” on this occassion.
Further film premiere event details and gallery below.

Arrived: 4 pm ish

Shots: 87 photos and 70 or so technical keepers a bit lower if you filter out the not so hot pics
Camera: old lucky Canon 30d with nifty fifty lens
Flash: Manual and 1/4 power for distance work and 1/8 power for closer shots. Currently playing around with some diffusers for close up work so stars can see what they are signing when doing autographs. Sample 1 tried here on some shots creates a soft fog effect. Not sure about this look. Maybe try Sample 2?
Settings: f3.5 to about f11 depending on distance and background clutter
