This has a very specific meaning to it, with a nice use of mist and almost zero light to give a sense of style as well.

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.


I really like this film noir image because the backlighting has set a really long deformed figured shadow in front of the character which gives the scene a very mysterious effect.


Film Noir is said to be a large influence in Cyberpunk. Film Noir features a crime-centered dramatic plot, as well as dark and shadowy lighting. The aesthetics of Film Noir closely resemble that of Cyberpunk, and it is easy to see how Cyberpunk is rooted in Film Noir. #IML295_week5
