A fabulous pinup shoot with the lovely BeckiLavender AKA BeckiLouise. Whilst this genre was new to her, she took to it very quickly. The task was made easier by the fact she is a physically-fit former gymnast with a lovely hourglass figure.
The shoot comprised of a series of sets that would deploy a mix of posture, camera angle and corsetry to make a modern girl’s figure look vintage. And it all had to be done with a sense of irony and fun. The transformation from modern to vintage and working to achieve that classic hourglass vintage shape is always half the fun of working with someone who has not done vintage before. And she definitely injected a sense of fun into the shoot – which is always our prime objective in any sort of pinup.
The proverbial cherry on the cake was the fact she brought her wonderful mermaid costume. With the addition of some wacky lighting and a fog machine we had enormous fun with this. All in all it was a wonderful session and I cannot wait for our next shoot.
