Film Noir Photo Shoot Part 1: It was a dark and stormy night

Posted on: October 7th, 2011
“In Noir it is always night and it always rains.”  We picked a perfect night to plan this Film Noir style shoot in Woodland, CA with skies just clearing from a storm.  The stage was set cloudy skies and a hallway full of models all made up in 40s attire.  Mysterious crimes, femme fatales, and private investigators fill the page resulting in a dramatic series of photos.  Thank you to the team of people working on this shoot: Mojo’s Lounge for use of their location (which will be an awesome place opening late November,,,), Joerg Lehmann for lighting design, Artistry Pro for makeup and general on site assistance, and to Shea Lillard for hair styling.  
I wish you all could have been there to understand just how much fun this shoot was ~ but sharing the photos would be the next best thing.  Stay tuned for part 2 of the Film Noir series: Femme Fatales!
