Agent Schultz by markobrutus, on Flickr



My friend had wanted to help me with my photography skills because he had seen me [lately] attempt REALLY hard at becoming a better photographer. So he told me the next time you have an idea that he would like to be a part of it. So I took him up on the offer!

The shot was taken for a contest which was called "film noir."
The description to the contest is this - ""Film Noir" is a genre of film between 1940 and 1960, originating in the United States, employing heavy shadows and patterns of darkness, in which the protagonist dies, meets defeat, or achieves meaningless victory in the end. Take a photo using the style of film noir."

I came in tenth place out of over 100 entries!

:D

Beautiful photo, and congratulations on your placement! I love low key photos, they're just something so dark and mischievous about them.

I'm assuming that you shot it with your 50mm f/1.8?

Actually it was shot with my 18-55 kit lens. My 50mm 1.8 is being borrowed by a friend.
