Laura – Vintage Model Photography

Classic Vintage Model Photography

Laura’s got that vintage look – the Monroe-esque hair leaves you in no doubt! She’s actually considering working as a Marilyn Monroe Lookalike in future.

On this model portfolio shoot we went somewhere timeless, Saltaire. The park offered lots of props and backdrops for us to create that classic look. I also tried to create a slightly more dramatic lighting – the Hollywood look suits vintage model photography.

Techy Stuff…

  • The lighting was provided by 3 speedlites
  • Light modifiers were – 1 gridded beauty dish – 42cm diameter, and 2 snooted flashes (using Flash Benders folded into a tube)
  • Canon 5D mark 2
  • Canon 70-200 F2.8L IS

Laura’s great to work with, bubbly, chatty and has loads of classic poses in her repertoire – well worth looking up on Purple Port if you need that classic look.
