Women’s 1940s Fashion Shoot

I loved doing the women’s segment of the 1940s fashion shoot. I think that the girls looked so pretty in their costumes. We also got really lucky because each of the models fit the time really well. It made it easier to really get into the time if that makes sense.

I personally had a little trouble posing the models but I just tried to think of ways to pose them that would make them look like they were really in the 1940s. My goal was to make them look tough yet feminine because that’s how the women of that time were. Once again lighting was everything. I used a variety of lighting techniques but the photos with continuous lighting and an orb ended up looking the best. The last photo is my last one particularly because of the lighting.
