The beauty of hard light
Black Noir originated in the 40’s till late 50’s. This film style expressed cynical attitudes and moody (lowkey) lighting.
The first week of January 2018 Erik shot a black noir inspired beauty shoot. Because Erik was in Emmen (Drenthe) at that time he used his mother’s apartment and redecorated the living into a small studiospace. For this he bought a venetian blind at the Praxis (Home Depo) for 12 euro. In the apartment, he found a ton of useful props like black vases and a gold retro lamp.
The basement/parking area of the apartment utilizes concrete walls and some nice light trough doors that gave some nice shadow patterns.
