Exploration into Film Noir

During my A-levels I focused my project on dramatic imagery. This led me to investigate the classic Noir style of photography which had a brilliant focus on lighting and composition. First I tried a lot of shots against a black background with two point lighting.

For the final part of my A-level I created a short film using still images akin to the film La Jetée by Chris Marker (1966). The following images are the ones I took for this short film, which used some more adventurous settings.
