Film Noir photography is typically black and white, dark, and plays up the shadows, sometimes severely. I decided to take a few of my past kitten images and convert them to the genre. I honestly did not take the shadowing to extremes, but in the future I'd like to shoot with Film Noir in mind and grab those shadows from the get go. Instead, I used a grunge overlay for the first image.
Cue voice over:
"How did the kittens get on the case?"
"Is the case in danger?"
"Are the kittens in danger?"
"Will the kittens escape the case?"
Tune in for the riveting story of four kittens trapped on a case!
Yes, I had some fun putting this week's images together, including the final image.
Originally a photo of a pup against a black background, I added in a stock photo of a train station at night and played with the lighting on the pup. I was tempted to put a single street lamp next to him, but decided against it in the end, leaving the image a bit shadowy. You get to think up the title to this mysterious case.
It's the Case of the Weekend coming up, and I hope there is no mystery to your having fun!
