Here’s a video from a recent pin-up photography session that I did with Doreen and makeup artist Tessa Mitz. I love the vintage pin-up posters of the 1940s and 1950s! For inspiration, I browsed through the vast collection of pin-up art on The Pin-up Files and chose some images for posing ideas. I also checked out photos of Dita Von Teese, one of my favourite contemporary pin-up models. We referenced the images during the session so we had lots of poses and variations to work with.
After the shoot I edited the photos with Lightroom and Photoshop to re-create the glamour and pin-up look. Here’s a short video tutorial about creating a vintage look with Photoshop.
For more inspiration check out the work of Dale May. His conceptual work and digital composites are outstanding!
