In the mood for…film noir

with one comment

Those in the know will know my life has been a little eventful of late, so apologies for lack of posts.

You have Rob Heslop to thank yet again for this post. We got together with a bunch of photographer and model friends last weekend and did a fun film noir shoot. The photographers got to direct, the models got to act and the photographers had very little post-processing to do.  Win-win-win! I’ve learnt plenty about controlled lighting recently and a good part of it is with thanks to Rob 🙂

This brought me back to my film student days, studying the lighting setups of Orson Wells & Co. Good times.

My setups may not have been strictly film noir, but I was going for the mood…painting with light.
