Studio Harcourt, Paris. They use no flash only Tungsten lighting. Each part of the body or the face is illuminated separately by a light with a power of 500watt. Each light have also barndoors, so the photographer can manipulate the beam of light, a small part is lighted. Noticed the use of reflectors to lower the contrast in the shadows. Camerasetting: f5,6 for a small DOF 1/125sec for a not blurry portrait and 85mm as lens. There’s little postproduction, only the contrast is set higher.

Caminando la noche Escuchando la música del asfalto Y un cerco de faroles desteñidos Van acompañando Mi regreso a casa
