Alright, we’ll be the first to admit that this isn’t strictly photography related, but it’s a funny camera issue and a great way to start Tuesday off on a light note. The viral BBC News clip above is quickly spreading to all corners of the globe as people giggle their way through what may be one of the funniest transitions in serious news history.
Just as the reporter is finishing what sounds like a very serious financial story, the camera slowly tilts up, wiping her from the shot even as the green screen background remains unchanged. The video then cuts abruptly to the other reporter who ever so awkwardly says “I think we had a problem there with our camera at the end.” Well, that’s an understatement.
So remember this the next time you experience technical difficulties on a shoot, because you’re not alone.
