A Final Few from the Vintage Clothing Shoots

Last year I wrote several posts about fashion shoots using vintage clothing. These are a few shots which slipped through the net.

First one – a black dress and lace gloves holdingĀ  a silver heart. The thing I remember most about this is the hours of editing to remove all of the distracting reflections from the metallic surface. In the end I wasn’t entirely happy with the result but decided I wasn’t going to do any better!


Next one – Emily on a bridge taken with the plastic lens on a Lensbaby. It was the end of a long day, and to be honest I was feeling a bit tired and hungry so this was the best of that short session.


This one I particularly liked – Emily looking defiant is the corner of run down building. It’s the textures and the way the light falls which makes the shot, enhanced by the use of the Canon ‘clear’ colour profile which is really useful.


Finally, Mary doing a typical ‘book cover’ pose – tweaked post processing to add a vignette and give it a blue/green hue.


If you’d like to see the results from the last shoot see here.

As always these shots are taken for the book cover market, and all comments, critiques and questions are welcome.

Thanks for looking!
