In the stills that I chose, both the leading actor and leading actress are in the shot and are holding each other and are mediums shots. In the shot taken from LA Confidential, the setting is in Lynn's bedroom where she is sitting on the bed and Bud is standing above her. Her bedroom is dark like it is late afternoon and the sun is setting. You can see some shadows from the sun coming into the room which makes the room see brighter. In Double Indemnity, the setting is in Walters Apartment. His apartment is very dark and the only source of you see may be from a lamp.
A difference I see in Double Indemnity and LA Confidential is the positioning of characters. In Double Indemnity, you only see part of Walters face and his back is turned toward the camera while Phyliss is turned towards the camera more. In LA Confidential, you can see Buds face more while Lynn's has her face is turned away from the camera. Another interesting thing seen in the movie is who is superior in this specific shot. In Double Indemnity, Phyliss is at Walters house while in LA Confidential Bud is at Lynn's house. I thought of this as who is superior because of the setting because Phyliss comes to Walter showing that she is coming to him for help while Bud comes to Lynn's.
