Film noir in photography describes the kind of dark, moody and dramatic images that mimic the look and feel of dark scenes from movies made in the 40s, 50s and 60s. The composition and lighting are quite specific and give these images a bold look. There is a huge contrast between the darks and the lights, and the shadows are quite dramatic. Most of the time, the subject would be partially thrown into darkness revealing only parts of them. The dramatic shadows cast by strong lighting helps create a mysterious effect.
Our model on the day will be Ria Fantastic – one of your last chances to work with her before she retires as a model at the end of the summer.
Lights will be set up in advance and we will have a great selection of props and outfits, according to the theme.
Enjoy the shadows, come to the noir side of photography!
You can check Ria’s portfolio in the gallery attached.
A professional photography studio near Stratford. Different backgrounds, light modifiers and props available.
No experience of the particular theme is required and we can accommodate all levels of ability. As usual, we will take care of everything and all you need is your camera (with a standard hot-shoe to accommodate the provided radio trigger for the lights).
The lights will be setup in advance, but you are free to experiment with them (and I’ll be there all the time for help).
Parking places are available nearby the studio.
