I recently did a personal shoot. The original concept was sparked during a movie I was watching. There was a particular scene in this movie where the actress was standing in a dark living room and there were car lights outside that were coming in through the window and illuminating the woman with a hard shadow, contrast rich light. So I created a concept shot of a burglar lurking in a living room setting. I chose a similar style of lighting along with the addition of a second blue gel grid light to provide some edge detail in my subject as well as to cast some color onto the background walls. After I did the first shot I had originally planned for, I decided to have some fun and go for a mood that was a little more on the humor side showing a burglar taking a lunch break.
