  1. You get two photos, go wild and have fun. A true explosion of color. A friend who saw this final image told me, the tulips might be male, it looks like they consumed some viagra. hahaha

    My Photo Ramblings: Photographing Pin-Up Of Today

    Both images were shot with the Lumix GH2. Natural light. No flash. The model was shot in front of a black backdrop at 640 ISO, but noise ninja and my own photoshop actions gave her the smooth complextion you see here in the final collage.

    I love it,

    My wife is part of a group that dress up a lot in 40's clothes and attend shows etc, some of the dresses are stunning and even though this is later it still stands out as a classic period image.

    Great job.

  3. I LOVE that period as well. 20's 40's 50's....

    In July I am hosting a on-location workshop in Montreal. We have two days back to back shoots. 6 participants each day. One day we'll have a red vintage corvette 1969, the oher day we will have a vintage 1925 Mclaughlen Coach. The girls/models will dress to the period.

    I am truly looking forward to host this workshop.

    I am a big fan of the 40s dress and hair (and also big band music). No idea why, but it may come from my love of WWII history.

    Great shot, and thanks for posting.

    Very nice...love the color!

    Just curious...I notice the model is not looking at the camera. Many pin-ups, including the vintage 'pirate' on your blog look directly at the camera/viewer - which, to me, adds to the engagement.

    How do others react to this aspect?

  8. I have shot the model from a below angle. She is looking directly at my camera. Are you talking to photograph the model at her eye level or from above her looking at you?

    I like shooting below, it elongates the legs of short people and makes them look taller. A personal choice.

    Can everyone tell us their opinions on this matter. Tom is making a great point.

    Personally I thought the model was looking at the camera. But I can see how it's not 100% certain, due to the model's large thick eyelashes obscuring her eyes! :wink:

  12. She was last night at a Hollywood Gallery on Melrose Blvd. signing her book which one of my photos got published in it.

    Here is my copy of the book.
