Strike a Pose

I really like the look of the black and white Film Noir Portraiture and Hollywood Glamour Photography that came out during the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s.
The high contrast of light and shadows convey such emotion.

One way to achieve this look is with a High Key dramatic portrait. High Key is bright with a stark white background.
To create a high key image you need to set your exposure to high values.
And strike a pose.....

Greta Garbo, and Monroe
Deitrich and DiMaggio
Marlon Brando, Jimmy Dean
On the cover of a magazine

 Grace Kelly; Harlow, Jean
Picture of a beauty queen
Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire
Ginger Rodgers, dance on air

They had style, they had grace
Rita Hayworth gave good face
Lauren, Katherine, Lana too
Bette Davis, we love you.

 Ladies with an attitude
 Fellows that were in the mood
Don’t just stand there,
let’s get to it
Strike a pose,
there’s nothing to it
