So what do you think? Not too bad. Of course I am not fully satisfied with my beginner skills, but that only makes me so much determined to execute this! I am very excited to share some of these photos with you and ask for some feedback.
Not only did I have amazing models (The blond-http://stephanieanncook.carbonmade.com/) and C-KO (The brunette-http://www.c-ko.org/) I had a wonderful instructor, Bobby Deal. (http://www.vegasvisionstudios.com/) Stephanie was the model from my first photoshoot as a photographer. She is just so sweet and reliable. If you ever are in Vegas and need a model, she is the one to go to!! As for C-KO, it was my first time with her. She is everything! Stylist, make-up, hair, model, body paint, wardrobe, you name it. Check out both of these girls, they have outstanding portfolios!
As for me. I did my homework this shoot. I pulled up images and tried to read the history. Interesting stuff. And Pinup is such a simple shoot. But its not! If you take a look back at actual pinup photos, they are plain. One prop usually while in a costume or a sexy outfit. Its the poses and animation is what makes it. THE FOCUS IS THE MODEL! I know I am not a GURU in this field, but this is what I have learned. And I am sharing it.
I seriously want everyone to get something out of this. GO OUT AND DO IT! I have wanted to be a photographer for quite some time just never got up and did it! Same with make up. THE MAC COUNTER SCARED ME!!!! But I just went for the interview anyway. YOU DO YOU! I thought my life was never gonna start after I had kids. I knew it would take a minute to get back to "MARISSA" but after having twins, I thought I was DONE-ZO. Not the case. I am the proof! You only have one life to live. Go make the best out of it please!
