    My take on Film Noir


    Often with multiple light sources.

    Usually Black and White

    Frequently High Contrast

    Almost Always Dramatic

    Normally tells a story

    When I first captured this one, I thought it was amazing. Now a few years later, I realize I just love it because it's my wife and maybe the processing is OK. But I no longer think it's so special. Do you guys think this one has the noir feel?

    maybe this one is closer to the right feel? I'm never quite sure I get it.

    Big points for the person and quality composition. It doesn't say "hot tub" to me because the water isn't bubbling around the person, or whatever I see typically in hot tub photos. But it's a little soft for noir. If you added a small handgun that would raise the noir quotient considerably. The second image looks like a place that might harbor a small-time drug deal, but move it to the docks etc. and it could get interesting.
