Tori: Military Pinups
Tori responded to an ad I posted about doing some old-new school military themed pinups. She had a bunch of old WWII stuff that worked out great for this. The shoot was great fun. If everyone in the military looked as good as she does in a uniform there’d probably be a lot less war. I’m writing my congressperson now…
The piece above is my favorite. I was able to combine an HDR image I took out in the Mohave desert with the studio-shot pinup. Tori was holding an umbrella and I added the gun and the fire during editing. Feel free to derive your own meaning from the retro headline.
The piece above was fun to make. I was planning on using a stock photo for the plane (p-51 Mustang) but I have this extremely strong aversion to using other people’s work in my own, probably stemming from my unhealthily oversized ego… I ended up drawing the plane from scratch. I think it fits the pinup style. If you’d like to hire Tori you can find her HERE
