    So I'm doing this photo project on a 'film noir' style of shooting thats going to end up an 11x17 photo book.

    I have TONS of ideas. I'm really pumped for this.

    What I don't have: People.


    Questions:

    How do I get people?

    How do I get people with appropriate costumes?

    Makeup?

    Props?



    I've done a bunch of weddings and shoots where I am just the photographer. I show up, I set up the lighting, shoot, post process, ???, win.


    I've never been the guy who does all of the coordination.

    I'm lost, and I feel awkward.


    Help.

    Can you goto a costume shop or something and look for zoot suits?

    Put a craigslist post out for models who are into the swing era zoot suit style. Have them bring their own gear because they would probably be more familiar with the period than you might.

    I have a friend that's trying to get into model photography, he posted on craigslist stating very clearly he was looking for practice, made it very friendly, very open and got a couple of hits back :dunno: worth a shot if you say its for a school project. I just wouldn't do it at your house. If you have a studio for class or somewhere you can rent out or go would be safer. :dunno:

    just post on facebook to yourfriends. "I'm trying to take some film noir type photographs. If you're interested in being photographed, I'll give you digital copies of all the pictures. Please let me know!"

    I want to do most of this on location in a city, or at a specific set. Not in a studio.

    Good thinking about the 'not at my house' thing.

    don't wanna get robbed or some shit.

    Still going to need a stylist for hair and makeup, but the CL idea is a good way to get people with period clothing.
