Pinup Model Miss Merlot
Sometimes you find the perfect pinup model, and Miss Merlot is going to be one of those people I am really glad I got to spend time with. There are two sets with her, one as a Gangster Gun Moll, and one as a generic Pinup Model with a 67 baby blue impala that just makes you ignore the model. I wanted to do some of this different, so I was looking for more of a paparazzi feel to this one. I did two sets, one in natural light, and one with a flash set to +3 EV to really blast the model, and kill off the background to get the look and feel I was going for in the second set. Miss Merlot was all over the idea and was very cool to work with on this one.
It is always a good idea to have ideas on what you want to do with the model, and as I get more comfortable working with people to see what I can get away with, the comfort level of your model matters. These were taken at the last Femme LTD photo shoot in Burien Washington. As always feel free to let me know how you really feel.
