Jeff Bridges' 'Making Iron Man' Photo Diary

'Making Iron Man'In addition to his work in front of the camera, actor Jeff Bridges apparently has quite the eye for photography, too. Case in point: The online photo diary he recently posted to his personal website, featuring more than 30 images from the set of "Iron Man."

Titled "Making Iron Man," the photo diary provides a particularly interesting behind-the-scenes peek at the making of Marvel Studios' blockbuster -- including candid shots of director Jon Favreau and star Robert Downey Jr, as well as much of the cast, crew and special effects that made the film possible. Bridges also provides handwritten commentary for many of the images that provides a narrative of sorts for the images.

I've posted one of my favorite photos here, which shows a table in legendary effects producer Stan Winston Studios lined with pieces of Iron Man's armor and, in the background of the shot, a model of Frankenstein's Monster likely used in one of the studio's past projects. The juxtaposition of Iron Man's armor and the classic movie monster is impressive, but there are a lot of other images worth checking out in Bridges' gallery, too.

Along with the aforementioned tour of Stan Winston Studios, some other highlights from the Bridges' photo diary include the group effort that went into him shaving his head for the role of Obadiah Stane, as well as some very documentary-style photos from script sessions with various creators involved with the film. It's worth mentioning again how impressive this photo diary is, and how much it says about Bridges' talent as both an actor and photographer.
