Hello Roger and all,

Do you find yourself tending to get tired of shooting masters as a two shot? Now obviously there are many different variations to this, but as a generalization what would you do to spice up a scene up if a director just wants to shoot every single 2 person conversation like this?

I am not sure what you mean by 'spice up a scene'. Either a scene plays in a two shot or it needs more punctuation, a more detailed look into the character's faces. A two shot can create tension, be observational or feel nondescript depending on the context within the film, the setting and the composition.
