The agency I shoot for specialises in creative publication imagery and crime novels are a bit of a speciality of theirs, so inevitably you end up taking some unusual shots…
Onto the first one, shot after a vintage photo shoot in abandoned building (obviously). Toned and textured in Photoshop, the fallen chair in the deserted building is something of a crime book cover classic subject.
This one’s in a different vein – thanks Pete for standing in the doorway. It’s a ‘frame within a frame’ shot of a reflection in a mirror and hopefully conveys some implied surprise or tension. This has just some basic toning to bring out some greys in the white paintwork surround.
Finally a shot taken in some tunnels and a figure running towards the light with a slow shutter speed. A classic cover shot if ever there was one..
Thanks for looking – hope you like them and they give you some creative ideas for your photography.
I love the narrative and dramatic quality of this series.
I agree with Marcelo. Wonderfully atmospheric as well.
You’ve captured the noir mood quite well here.
Great, like them all, but especially the tunnel.
