Themed Photo-Shoot: Film Noir Photography with Welshot

What Will Happen

Film Noir Photography – a style or genre of cinematographic film marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace. Originally applied (by a group of French critics) to American thriller or detective films made in the period 1944–54 and to the work of directors such as Orson Welles, Fritz Lang, and Billy Wilder, at this themed photo-shoot by Welshot you will be using Off Camera Flash as well as Studio Mains Flash using elements such as cynical heroes (Your models), stark lighting effects and learning how to use lighting modifier, special effects and props to tell a story in your photography of intrigue and mystery.

We will have at least SIX different studio set-ups based on various themes which suit black and white photography. Each set will be complete with props and models dressed in authentic costumes. Our location is the St Mary’s Creative Space in the historic City of Chester which will also provide us with numerous nooks and crannies to capture the intrigue in your camera.

Whether you are a beginner to photography, a photographer who would like to try a new genre, learn an new technique or skill or a more advanced photographer who wants to build their image portfolio, you will be made welcome and we would love to help you get the best out of your camera.

The Welshot Team will be at hand throughout this session to assist and help you get the best from your camera, so you can leave at the end of this session with memory cards full of beautiful photographs and great memories.
