Studio lighting Film Noir Gloom

This is the last of the lighting sessions where we've been exploring lighting with a Film Noir/Horror theme. Again using chiaruscoro techniques (Single point light) allowing for much of the scene to fall into darkness increasing the sense of gloom. As before, the influence comes from film stills - Nosferatu the vampire (The stair case shadow scene). One of the scenes from the film Noir Classic 'Double Indemnity' and the more recent take on film Noir - 'Sin City'.
