No one can deny the lasting, iconic look of film noir. Drawing from that inspiration, photographer Aaron Anderson takes us behind the scenes to document a recent portrait session with Colorado actress Lizbeth Splawn. Join Anderson to see his inspirational approach, lighting rig, and communicative collaboration with his model in this video.
“I wanted to bring a film noir-look with my style behind it,” he says. “Something that has the drama and feel of film noir, but also [something I] bring my own feel and aesthetic to.” Going for a sad and contemplative look, Anderson wanted a lighting style to compliment those emotions.
