Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Enjoy these pics from a recent Valentine’s Day-themed pin up shoot. The model is the lovely Corinna Do. Corinna is a fantastic model based in Tampa, whose specialty is her vintage look. I simply adore the classical feel of pin up photography, and it is actually an easy look to achieve once you do your research.
An experiment in portraiture with my friend Cheryl: we sat in silence for 30 minutes, during which time I photographed her without direction. Note we originally planned for an hour (and that I wasn’t supposed to move the camera at all), but could only stand the silence for :30. I got the idea from a great book called, “Train Your Gaze” which said that Avedon often photographed his subjects in silence. He was a great photographer, and was also clearly less of a nervous energy-fueled, chatterbox than I.
