Back in mid-March Once Upon A Time filmed several scenes in downtown Steveston for episode 522, the first part of the 2 hour season finale.
In the day scenes, they shot a scene with several cast & guest stars. In the night scene, it was all about 2 cast. Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan) and Colin O'Donoghue (Captain Hook) shot a scene that saw the pair, known by their fans as CaptainSwan, do a scene where they walk down the street of Storybrooke hand in hand before arriving at Grannys diner.
Due to the angles and set up of the crew, there was very little to see of this scene. You basically had two options. Option 1- stand out on the street at 1 end with a tonne of crew, equipment and purposely placed scrims to minimize how much you could see. Option 2 - stand at the other end, but only get a quick 1-3 second glimpse of the pair returning from the scene and the very beginning of the takes. I chose option 2, which meant my view of the actual scene was limited to the very start, less than 1/2 a second of an angle to get photos of them shooting the scene before they disappear behind the wall I had to stand behind.
There will be a couple more OUAT blogs this season coming up, as I have LOTS to post for the final episode 523, in which I shot over 2500 photos of. So I will try to get a couple of those up this week.

Once Upon A Time filmed scenes for an upcoming episode in Steveston back in March with several cast on hand.
In the daytime, they shot a variety of scenes that at the end of the shoot left those watching wondering VERY MUCH if they had just seen a lead up to how season 6 might start.
The scene they shot had a variety of characters and guest actors like Jason Burkhart (Little John), Amy Manson (Merida) and Raphael Alejandro (Roland) talking to a group of Storybrooke residents, including Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White), Josh Dallas (Prince Charming), Colin O'Donoghue (Captain Hook), Rebecca Mader (Zelena) and Beverley Elliott (Granny).
It was pretty hard to hear any of the dialogue from the scene, but it was clear that the group were meeting up with the Storybrooke group to say some last good byes.
They then shot a scene where Zelena opens a door that magically appears in the middle of the street and all the non-Storybrooke characters go thru.
It starts with Merida going thru, she says her good byes to Charming & Snow then walks thru. It ends with Little John and Roland, who it seems is now in the care of the big sidekick of Robin Hood, just before they go thru Zelena has a talk with Roland, and I am sure we all know (assuming you are caught up on your spoilers) what that talk probably will be about. As Roland leaves, he waves good bye to Storybrooke as well as as Snow and Charming before going thru the door with Little John.
Once thru the door, Zelena tries to close the door....but of course, this is Once Upon A Time, so it doesn't go as planned, and the group get sucked in thru the door.
Video of 1 of the takes has been added below.
As well, shots of a night scene (not many) with Colin & Jennifer Morrison will be posted later in a different blog post HERE.
