Romola Garai and Hugh Bonneville in the BBC's 2002 adaptation of George Eliot's Daniel Deronda
Several of you have been asking where I get costume drama pictures for my blog posts. I get most of them from the Shootastic galleries and the Tudorphiles forum gallery. Both websites require you to register before viewing the photo galleries, but in both cases registration is quick, easy, and free.
But one of the best places to find pictures is fansites. If there is a popular young actor/actress in one of your favourite period films, chances are you'll be able to find the pictures you're after on websites created by fans of the actor. For instance, you can find loads of P&P 2005 pictures on Keira Knightley fanpages, or S&S 1995 pics on Kate Winslet sites. Just do a google search for "______ [insert name of actor here] fansite", and see what you come up with.
One more hint if you're posting photos onto your blog: don't upload pictures onto blogger! If you do, they'll come up grainy and poor-quality. I usually upload pictures onto photobucket (or whatever image hosting website you use), then copy and paste the image code into my blog post via the "Edit Html" option.
