I have been wanting to do a ‘pin up’ style photo session for a while. I love the look of that era of glamour… the make up, the hair, the colors, the clothes, etc.. It was great to step out of my usual editing technique and develop the images for a more posterized/stylized result. In the future, I would like to do another ‘pin up’ session in an urban/industrial setting. I am thrilled I could take a little step back to into the 40s and I couldn’t have asked for a better model.
As I have been staying in Yuma, AZ for the holidays, I decided to take my cousins Cassie and Jessica and do an impromptu photo shoot. We live way out in the country surrounded by lettuce fields so I had them trekking through the mud and lettuce, but I got some amazing photographs. My beautiful cousins were great models and the whole shoot was a lot of fun. These photos are lightly edited, but I love the natural, bright look.
