I originally put this under a related thread, but I decided that it would recieve more attention on its own. My thanks to those who already gave me a response on this!

Here's my issue:

I'm working on the lighting for a project of a friend of mine in New York City soon, a film-noir piece. I'm just a first year student myself, so I haven't actually done any lighting for film yet, though I have had some experience with DV (boo, hiss). Thus, I have several questions.

1.) Any tips in achieving film noir lighting? Assume that I know nothing at all about lighting, I think I'll learn more that way.

2.) How can I maintain a noir feel while shooting in the city during the day?

3.) How can I maintain a noir feel while shooting out of the city during the day?

Thank you all very much for your responses. :)
