Transformers 3 is shooting/wrecking shop in downtown Chicago. My girlfriend and I thought it would be fun to see how close we could get to the action and snap some photos. We adopted the “act as if” attitude and walked right up to the barricades blocking the crowd, moved them out of the way, told the security guard, “Excuse me” and continued right onto the set.
We figured if anyone asked, we would tell them we were Shia LeBeauf’s cousin. No one asked..
The badass camera I used for these photos is the new Olympus PEN E-PL1.
