This set is a Noir inspired detective story with a deep subtle meaning. As the audience reads both the images and the accompanying text they are confronted by a familiar Noir theme (detective, darkness, unknown threat, and so on) and a secondary reading of the statement “the camera is like a weapon.” I have used expressive low key lighting and high and low camera angles and framing as well as costumes, props and setting to express this Noir element and subtle hints to reveal the camera as a weapon theme such as using a camera in place of a gun.

I want the reader to read this set with a gun in mind then realize the twist is that there is more to it than that, what was a gun is now a camera.
