I have been working with a couple models and would like to do some pinup style work for my portfolio but am not sure where to start with the clothing and the lighting etc.

What I often use is a book of Gil Elvgren illustrations (I bought mine at Half Price Books for $10) - has about 400 pin-up illustrations. You can also check out this style at

The above of Haley was patterned after a Norman Rockwell cover. There are some other pinups in my portfolio such as this one
