Veronica Lake 1940, photo by George Hurrell. (PIC 4) I love this image as the highlights and shadows are drastic, which gives a strong and dominant feel to the photo. Therefore making the women in the image important in some way. This is something I am going to consider in my own images as to portray the Hollywood actress as important and well known.


I like how they have used a bright light on her face leaving the other side in shadows, and its also quite close up which leaves mystery

Again.. a cigarette and smoke can create the perfect Film Noir composition. I love the light on the Fedora hat. I shall be trying to emulate this sort of composition in my project.
