811 Film Noir

Alexei did a photographic exercise that Chris considers one of the most important ones. He took the same photo 136 times. Benjamin wonders how to replicate the style of Film Noir with the right type of lighting and Chris helps analyze what Film Noir is, what its typical look is and how you can achieve the same today.

809 Up Your BW Game

It’s the BIG TFTTF SLACK CHALLENGE REVIEW .. with a little twist, it’s also on video. Chris also looks into how film converts the color spectrum of light into black and white and how you can benefit from that knowledge when you convert your digital photos and get much better results this way.
