Exploring the Film Noir Photo Style

February 28, 2017  •  1 Comment

I had the great pleasure of photographing Adam Joseph Ferry and Natalie Lucia at Wonderland Studios in Anaheim for a Film Noir inspired session.  I wanted to try to recreate some of the lighting and drama from that wonderful era in film.  After some experimenting with the strobes, I decided only to use a single light source with scrim for backlighting (on a few scenes) and a static fill light.  The effect is realized as the light is projected through a hand cut diagonal board for the fill light.  I'm already looking forward to the next shoot with this style.   

If you would like to shoot with me in the Film Noir Style, please send me a message! I would love to hear from you.

Here are some of the images from the session with Natalie and Adam.

Love the black and white creativity! Directional lighting intensifies the subject theme. A WOW!
