The Twilight Impulse

My thoughts and impressions of the Twilight Saga, written by the fabulous Stephenie Meyer


Hey, I'm a massive Twilight Fan, and thanks to my friends being fed up with having to listern to my non-stop chattering about Twilight, i decided to create a blog for myself to just vent and document my twilight obsession!! I'm current studying journalism and have aspiration to become one, so why not write about something as awesome as the Twilight Saga!!

David Slade and Taylor

OMG!! David Slade tweeted today this gorgeous picture of Taylor that he took during the early lighting tests in pre-production. David Slade takes amazing pictures, the composition is beautiful. The lighting, the make-up, the angle; just the whole simplicity of it. Also, Taylor's expression is heartbreakingly beautiful. He looks hurt, defensive, vulnerable, angry and in serious pain but he is trying to hide it with that mask he tries to wear. Stunning. This picture very obviously displays Taylor's understanding of Jacob' emotions and who he is as a character. It's a very authentic, natural and honest photo.

I hope his acting ability comes through in New Moon and Eclipse, like it does in this picture; because there is so much emotional depth depicted here. David Slade takes very beautiful pictures. The simplicity, and rawness of the still really displays his talent. Taylor is essentially wearing no make-up, you can see all of his face; Freckles, lines, scars, his pores and his hair on his upper lip. David Slade didn't cake his face with make-up, trying to hide it. This picture isn't sexy or hot, like photo shoots try to dress up their actors and make them look perfect. It's so much better than one of those shallow photoshoots ; this picture is very emotionally powerful, and just visually stimulating because its real and very fresh.

This shot is very visually, cinematically, artistically, and emotionally beautiful. Just by the rawness, the contemporary feel, and it doesn't have that fake showbiz feel, when they photoshop everything to make it look perfect. The whole point of this picture is that Taylor is perfect the way he is, without having people try to make him like a airbrushed model. I absolutely love this picture. I guess it's true that a picture can speak a thousand words. Phenomenal David. I hope your obvious visual talent comes across in Eclipse, as it's my favourite book in the saga.
