Midnight Noir Breakdown

Sultan Ghahtani aka Photo Sultan did a a fantastic job on this photoshoot with a 50’s-esque theme. The photo itself looks amazing even without retouching, but imagination takes over resulting into “Midnight Noir”. I have always loved the 40’s and 50’s era specifically pin-ups and the film noir look and feel.   For this touch up goal was to introduce more shadows and completely relight the scene. Check out the quick video breakdown below.

The final edit.
