I was really excited about the subject matter “film noir” being that im a huge fan of cinema and the film noir genre. I immediately had two films in mind once I heard what the assignment was. First was Kurosawa’s “Stray Dog” where a Japanese detective looses his gun and spend the majority of the movie hitting the streets trying to locate it. I had my friend Matt run through a smoke machine and down some hallways to try to capture that ‘gumshoe on the run’ feel. Another big stand out to me was Goyard’s “Breathless”. Whenever I think of this film my friends Rob and Devon always stick out on my head. Maybe It’s their looks or personalities, I can’t decide, either way they are awesome. I wanted the feel of them walking the streets as he tries to charm his way back into her life. Hopefully they convey those feelings with the photos. Those films mean a lot to me and I hope showed that.

I chose “Film Noir,” as the theme because I thought it was a nice broad theme everyone could have fun with. Film Noir often deals with exaggerated lighting and mood. It’s a fun genre where every kind of lighting situation can be vitalized, even a dimly lit alley.
I shot these both on film and digital, Canon Rebel EOS XS and a Canon 7D.
While the photoboxers are shooting their pictures for the “Film Noir” challenge, let’s take the time to get to know our new challenger, documentary photographer and entrepreneur Lyan Rau.
