Using one light and some household objects for a classic film noir look.

 

A lot of classic films that are considered Noir, were born out of a low budget.
The characters were regular people, the scenes took place in regular locations, and they used the bare minimum of lighting equipment.
So we should be able to recreate a noir shot a lot easier than say a Sci-Fi, with large sets and complex alien costumes.
