The long hot days of summer cause us to think cool thoughs. Mine drifted to a beautiful girl all alone in her apartment trying to cool off. Using my new thought transferance tool which I have ingeniously connected to my computer. I saved this thought and brought it to life in the image you see here. Ah, the lovely Barbie A, from Atlanta. So sweet and lovely.

Well, in reality this was from the Focus Workshop in Atlanta other weekend. After she sat down on the floor by the couch with the nice window light coming in, I could not resist adding the old fan and later a bowl of ice cubes to add to the sceen. Hope you enjoy it half as much as I did shooting it. I took the original image and did a little creative photoshop, giving me what I think is a stronger image that is focused on the mood of the theme.

Cool idea, hot day, but the lighted lamp shade and it's placement are as bright as her lingerie in the picture. Moving it to one side or the other might have helped with the overall shot and not having it lit up so much.

I like the shot and the concept, but this one would work better if some of the background clutter was removed or at least thrown a good deal more out of focus. The basic concept is one of the classics of pinup illustrations from a past era (Elvgren example below).



Cheers,

Do you dream in color?

depends on what i smoke before going to bed.

having said that, i like the concept here, but i think you missed something: the fan should be on and her hair should be blowing. i also think i would'a place the bowl of ice over to the left near the crook of her leg and would have liked to see some water rivulets going down her body from the ice cube she's applying... maybe some water droplets on the hard wood floor. smaller nit: the lamp in the BG is distracting and draws attention away. is it on? even if not, i think it could have been either removed, toned down, or mostly cropped out. okay, one more thing, since the fan kind of indicates a "period" you might have muted the colors a bit and maybe even added a very slight sepia tint in post.

Did you do that pin-up? If so, I need to pick your brain dry on how to do it!

No, its from Evlgren (I mentioned that in the post) and it has his signature on it. Here are two of mine that attempts to capture the flavor of that era:
