Hello there.
Would you mind if I used this picture as a basis for a film poster for a movie from Garry's Mod (Google it if you don't know what it is)? I jut want to sort of copy the positions of the desk, the person, the objects, and then move the lighting so it looks almost identical.
Would you mind?

It had been a tough day. A day of sweat stained collars and too many stairs to climb. Too many that is for a man jonesing for days when late evening cool breezes were enough to reward you for the all the crap life threw at you day after day. Long shadows of a fading sun seem like brethren to a guy like me. I know 'em. They seem to know me. And its an end of a day when I feel most likely to share with them the final swallow of my best whiskey. Before I head home. Head home and disappear into the night, just like the yellow bands of the sun across my desk.

Wonderful image. For a moment I was like, hmmm, no cigarette or pipe or anything? Then, I noticed the cigar in the ashtray. The whiskey, brandy, scotch? Whatever right? You nailed it for sure. I love this photo.

Cheers :)

Ah...the classic cliche that will never get old. I love these shots.

My god, this shot is amazing.
How did you get the angle for it?
Q-hoss Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2010
I have always had an interest in film noir. Personally I feel like I was born at the wrong time. I enjoy suits and ties, suspenders and fedoras and the like. The feeling I get from this work is its own beauty. The art of Edward Hopper usually utilized a contrast of light, usually sunlight in a room. The lines of shadows from the shades just ties the whole thing together.

I am not very good at saying what I think, but bravo, this is awesome.
this-is-ADAMANTOS Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010
Great picture, almost perfect! The only thing that's missing is the smoke from the cigar.
Berowa Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is exactly the noir I was looking for! <3 the stripes make intense, 'heavy' mood, so characteristic. I love it, I really do.
MPIII Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Great piece. I like the angle and all the use of props. Good stuff.
mircal Featured By Owner May 28, 2010
Ah, heart-warming. Great angle, makes it interesting as well as classic.
RLFedun Featured By Owner May 6, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
VERY awesome angle, I love how the shadows from the blinds go completely across the picture!

Thank you so much for the compliment. I'm curious how your picture turns out. Please let me know.

Ammeel Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2009
Golly, this is exactly the image in my head when I think of all those old wonderful detective stories! Amazing!
francoslavic-banter Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2009
You do such a magnificent job with photographing the shadows from the blinds. It's something I've attempted several times and not gotten quite right.

That and I just love noir on principle. Ergo, insta-fave!
Aghris Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009
Wow, thanks for the gush. I really appreciate it :)
filmbufs Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2009
Really nice work. Your composition is awesome.
Hey, could I possibly use this cool image for a potential demo cd cover?

Aghris Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009
I'm quite happy to let you use it, but please put me in the credits (preferably with my website [link] or this deviant page). And if you ever find a profit for your CD, you know how to find me ;)

I love it, the lighting, the props it all comes together so well.
taekwondogirl Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2008  Student General Artist
Perfect. I love the thought put into this shot and the amount of detailing visible by the prop selection. On top of that, the composition is wonderful.
