Roxy arrived at the studio today for a ‘pin-up’ girl shoot. She was after the style of images that used to adorn posters around the 40s and 50s, a vintage glamour look. I shoot a lot of glamour portfolios for girls but mostly of what I’d class as the “FHM” style so a Betty Paige style shoot was something different and a bit of a challenge. I do like a challenge though :¬) I decided to shoot high key and on a white infinity curve, this is a simple technique but uses a lot of lights, well, four to be precise, but it gave me the shadowless look I was after. Then, a bit of post processing on the images to give them that painterly feel like the posters of old and here’s what I came up with. Its the pose too, that is very suggestive of the pin-up girl look. Great fun, more to come!
