Studio Session - Film noir


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Join us as we explore taking Film Noir pictures in the studio inspired by a popular short course online by Gavin Hoey. Film Noir is a term originally applied to stylish Hollywood detective dramas made in the period 1944–54. Film Noir is also a still photography genera, largely influenced by the movies. In film noir, lighting is used to create shadows and give the viewer a sense that danger lurks just around the corner. The images don’t have to be black and white, but often are black & white to capture the feel for the era.

During this session we will explore Film Noir with sets that feature the distinctive lighting, with models portraying the hard-boiled detective and brassy dame key to the nature of the genera. Studio photography experience is not required. Experienced studio photographers will be on site to answer any questions and set lights.

There is a $20 fee per member to assist with prop and wardrobe purchases. Participants are asked to upload a few images from the session to an online gallery shared with models and makeup artists participating in the session. A tip jar will also be available at the session to show appreciation for the models.
