Two postings in one year. Yowza!
From a recent shoot with Atlanta-area model Brooke, to emulate that look of the classic "film noir" movies. Also, this was my first shoot done entirely using hot (incandescent) lights.
Fuji Finepix S3 Pro, white balance set for tungsten light, 18-200 Nikkor VR zoom at 117mm, ISO 400, f6.7 at 1/125th, manual mode.
Metered with a Gossen Luna Pro S, converted to black-and-white using Photoshop Lab Color mode and deleting the A and B channels.
Lighting courtesy of three 50-year-old Bardwell-McAlister six-inch keg focusing spots (750 watts each) and a 1000 watt Altman 16-inch scoop light for fill. All direct lighting. No umbrellas. No soft boxes. No bounce. No scrims.
And yes, the Speed Graphic is in perfect working condition. I shot during this session with that, too.
Didn't matter that the weather outside had been well below freezing that morning, it was toasty warm in the garage! I'll look for a spike in my electric bill.
Comments and critiques welcome. As we would say in the Navy, "Fire one!" (Unless you're ex-Air Force, then it's "Bombs away!")
