This is a film noir style shot from a forthcoming feature on EPZ on shooting Hollywood Star portraits of the 30s and 40s. The lighting here varies from the usual "butterfly" style of the 40s, and heads into noir territory which started to influence portraiture in the mid-late 40s. There are two flash units, with no diffusion, on either side of the subject, with a reflector at the front, to just bounce a bit of light into the middle. The camera is slanted and the intention is to create a sense of danger and unease.
