My Helmut Newton-esque Film – Noir Portraits .
We were given an assignment to pick 1 of 6 images and then we commented on how it was achieved and which lighting was used . Then we had to go off and reproduce them technically .
My images below were shot in the studio with 2 bowens gemini lights , an attached snoot a honeycomb grid and a large softbox .
I like them all but particularly the one directly below . I used a snoot to direct the lighting into a rembrandt style on the face ( The triangle under the left eye is directly proportional and in line with the bottom of the nose . A honey comb grid attached to a bowens modelling light was used for the highlight in the hair .
