50's Style Pin-Up Fashion Shoot

This shoot was around London Bride and we faced challenges with the best locations (More London and Hays Galleria) due to their requirement for a photo licence. Its a lesson we all need to learn about arranging shoots, and the groups is getting more and more professional looking, especially at the senior shoots. I, for example, had a pair of dSLRs dangling from my neck and an off camera flash, others had dedicated soft boxes, lighting umbrellas etc... It is a little too blatant. As such, we got moved on several times and ended up using some of the streets of London Bridge. Personally, didn't mind in the end, as the gritty under-bridge shots worked well for me.

The models were excellent, but frozen by the end of the shoot, but the were very professional and didn't complain at all, though they did take every chance to wrap up warmly. I alternated between the Konica with a 50mm and the sony with the 18-70, the 18, in the right poses gave some interesting results, especially a closeup shot of Ander and a long-legged shot of Lucy.

Bad weather meant I was less inclined to unusual angles, especially as I'd got deisgned jeans on, which again is a lesson to learn. Wear cheaper clothes to shoots and "Man Up Nancy".... ignore the cold and mud to get that shot just right!

I've had some extremely positive feedback on some of the photos, which is extremely flattering, one was called timeless.
