Lost-photosThe landmark ABC TV show "Lost" seemed to lose its way somewhere around season three or four but those early episodes are still gripping television.

During the premiere season of Lost -- before anyone knew it was going to be a colossal hit -- actor and budding photographer Matthew Fox, who played Dr. Jack Shephard on the show, captured some interesting behind-the-scenes photos of the show being shot in Hawaii.

In the below video, which shows off those images, Fox explains he was inspired to take photos on the set by actor Jeff Bridges, who does a panoramic photo book of every movie he's involved in, giving copies of the finished tome as crew gifts.

It's unclear in the video, which is from the extras of Lost's Season 1 DVD, whether Fox's book was just for people who worked on the film or whether there was a wider release. (We did a Google search and couldn't find it. If anyone knows, please leave info in the comments.)

Though Fox is a decent photographer, he makes one embarrassing gaffe in the DVD commentary, saying he shot the square photographs with a "Polga" camera he ordered while he was in Hawaii.

We think he means "Holga" camera.
