Pete Wright teaches you how to re-create mysterious, dark, and glamorous cinematic portraits reminiscent of those taken of 1920s' and 1930s' stars and starlets. The book contains 60 discrete sections which contain 60 of Wright's most impressive, nostalgic black & white portraits, along with some alternate poses and lighting diagrams. In each section, the author details the steps taken to create the final portrait. You'll learn how Wright conceptualized the shot and will gain insight into the location of the shoot, props selected to create the theme, wardrobe selection, and hair and makeup styling. The lighting units used on the set, light modifiers, and lighting setup employed will also be covered, allowing you to readily re-create the classic, dramatic Hollywood look with your own subjects. Wright will also discuss how he posed the subject to give him or her that superstar, larger-than-life look.
