Capturing portraits of women in WWII attire
Step back men, WWII couldn’t have been won without the women too. It was a blast being able to spend time in the Legacy Flight Museum in Rexburg, Idaho learning more about the planes and other equipment used in previous wars, specifically WWII. As well as working with male models, we had the chance to include some key female characters as part of our fashion shoot.
Women and portraits go together like peanut butter and jelly. There is such beauty and elegance that can be captured in a women expression and smile. It was fun to capture a few women in WWII attire as well as some clothing from that time period. Study your model to determine her unique, beautiful characteristics and highlight those things in your portraits. For example one model has the most beautiful smile, so I had most of her shots with her smiling with her teeth rather than making a serious face. Another model had fantastic cheek bones, so I had her turn to the side so the light could highlight the beautiful curve on her face.
