Another girl next door shoot with a theme of WW2 jeep.


I'm torn between the black and white and color versions. I like both. I didn't age the photo, just removed the color.


A pretty girl and a WW2 jeep, not much more could be finer.


Another shot same scene.


I really like her eyes.


And of course, I had to shoot her in the WW2 designed bathing suit. The rifle? Well, you know it's WW2 and you have to always be armed and ready.

Hope you like them. The full size versions look better but I think these shrunken down versions aren't too bad.

This was my first time shooting with RAW and having some margin of success. I generally used the onboard flash as a fill...though I was often too far away for it to do much filling. Shooting mostly with a telephoto lense.

I always like these pinpup style photos. I don't think the B/W ones work as well as the color ones. Also need to watch the horizon line going through the head of the model (in this case the top of the tent/tent window in three of the photos.

Here's one of my pinups:



Cheers,

Thanks for the comments. It all depends on the look you want to get. I don't think there was much color photography (at least on the scale of today)back in the day. Perhaps if I had sepia toned the photo that would have been more appealing.

As for as the horizons? Well that is actually the soft top of the jeep. From the angle shot there wasn't much I could do about it. Being a "4x4" we parked it on all sorts of terrain, level and not, to achieve various looks.

I really like your candy-striper girl set. Very nice.

not bad but the models look and facial expressions don't evoke much of the feel of that period. I would suggest you have the models review some images from the war period to get an idea of make-up, and the feel, before they pose for the shoot. Many women were more curvier and buxum back then, so the choice of the model is extremely important when you want to recreate a look from a certain date/period.

As far as the photogrpahy, go look at those same books and try and emulate how they did things, its not easy but when you score it can be a home run.

Bob

You have taken the first step into a room. You can explore it or turn around and walk out. As RFS has pointed out here and elsewhere, if you study this genre the images are simple, they are crisp and the color pallete is limited. You have made a good first step. Now, are you and your model ready to explore this time?

Clothing, hairstyle, expressions, colors, composition and on and on. I love exploring genres, if that is what you want to do really explore it. Great first steps.

Thank you for the reply. I was going for the 40s girl next door look. Not a pinup...though I wouldn't mind trying that, too. The idea was, it would be a picture of the girl back home (albeit in color instead of the typical BW) that a GI might carry with him. This is not to say that the average girl next door didn't also pose in pinups style.





We did do our homework for makeup. Found it on the web...of course. We knew knew about the colors and that they didn't have glossy lipstick(according to the website at any rate). Hair styles ran the gamut from wild to mild. We strove for a mild look. It was all that much simplier to style in the field.

Here is a REAL picture, along the lines that I wanted to capture.

Not sure I have a shot that duplicates this. But as you can clearly see the Major (Dr) took a picture of the wife. She is neither a pinup nor buxom. I suggest that like today, women came in all shapes and sizes.



My first model was a fuller figure kind of woman and my second is a slip of a woman.

I created a calendar with photos of this model.

Both I found attractive. I'm all for more practice. Not sure if I will continue to shoot with a 40s theme...though I do like my old jeep. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Not sure how I will or even I will use these photos.

Thanks for the input, I will try to keep it in mind.

Understand. Actually your first image comes close in my mind. Even the colors seem to be early Kodacolor. Thanks for sharing the images with us.
