    Please post your pictures that follow the Film Noir Genre. Read about Film Noir. See Flikrs excellent collection.
    This, strongly graphic, genre that is fun to shoot. I stumbled across it, and since then have had a lot of fun researching and gathering material. You can do it in any weather and only need perhaps a tripod.
    Here is my starter:
    12882688434_1085528dc2_b.
    Thanks to a fellow photographer for being the actor in this shot. The location was shot in a separate frame.
    Although typically black and white, appropriate colour shots are also welcome.

    John Alton's book Painting With Light is recently available on amazon for kindle which has made the book, long out of print, cheaper and available. It's a stealcompared to the $70 I had to pay for it. Looks like there may have even been a recent reprint, in addition to the kindle edition. Lots of great DIY grip projects, and how to use them in there.

    Very nice lighting Ian! It not only has a film noir look it almost has a graphic novel look due to the extremely high contrast. BTW where is that location? In Munich? A friend of mine once did a film noir video when he went on a trip to Europe and filmed some there. Sadly he was not good at story and even worse at editing. It ended up coming out more like a comedy with him running all over the place.

    Not a style I shoot very often, so this is probably my only contribution to this thread.
