1950s Swimsuit Model Styled Shoot

I had this idea floating around my brain for a while and just kinda needed to get it out. For those who know me well, I don’t take my giant camera gear with me anywhere to take pictures for fun. It kind of feels like taking your paperwork from the office out for an evening stroll. So for fun I use my iPhone or (more recently) an old toy film camera (more on that soon). But – sometimes I have an idea that I want to try that makes me really want to bring out the big guns and just shoot for fun. So this time I did.
