Choose a new or old noir movie. It can be a black and white movie such as Double Indemnity or a contemporary mystery film.


Choose a book to inspire you.

Photograph at night.

Look for places that remind you of a movie or a book scene.

You can re-create a scene if you wish.

Safety First

Go to safe areas.

Take a friend.

You can photograph at home if you don’t feel safe going out alone.

Post your photograph on Instagram on the Last Friday of the Month.

Use the hashtag   #NoirForever

That’s it!

I look forward to seeing your photos on the last Friday of every month!
