Challenge: At user request ""Hollywood" type black and white image"
 
I had a request for this, so let's see what you guys can do with it.

"Hollywood type black and white images"


No winners, no loosers. This is a wonderful chance to give you ideas on what to work on and to show your results! Post as many or as few as you like

First of all I didn't suggest this theme! Secondly, this style seems to be all the rage right now so this should be interesting. Three I don't want to throw cold water on this theme but IMHO the subject should not only be lit like they did back then (with hard lights) but they should also NOT be dressed in 2008 clothing, hair styles, and jewelry.

Terra came in for her senior portraits and she had brought along this suit. I mentioned that I just aquired an old Hollywood type light and I felt the suit was "1940 ish looking" enough so I suggested to her mother that she change her daughter's hair style to look more old fashioned. It took her about three minutes to go back 75 years!

Here are my two favorite images of Greer Garson, who IMHO was one of the most beautiful and talented Hollywood starlets of the 1940s. Note the hard shadows from the hard lights.

P.S. These are examples of the "Hollywood" style. They are not "in the running" in this challange, nor did I shoot them. I wasn't even born yet!.

And if that hasn't been decided yet, could it go through the end of February? :-) :-)

My attempt at a Hollywood-style shot. Olivia is the daughter of a dear friend who was cast as a lead in Annie and needed a 40'ish looking headshot for the foyer of the school along with the playbill. I'm sure there are lots of mistakes, but it was a fun shoot!

Here's one from a recent wedding. Can you believe this was available light with only fill flash? :)

I got a little time this afternoon but I'm not getting any more so this is as good as it's going to get from me.
