One of my absolute favorite things to view on YouTube are the 'Behind-the-Scenes' (BTS) videos that photographers and production teams post. Not only is it fun to see how other people work and interact, those videos are gold mines for technique, problem solving, light placement, improvision, and overall inspiration. Another great source are the BTS still photos that some magazines run in print or their website teasers.
