1940's Shoot

This is my 1940's inspired shoot with the lovely Tanith Mc Grath. I was going for a kind of rockabilly urban vibe, a bit of a different take on the classic 40's look, scrutinizing them now they kind of have a grungy feel to them, what do you think?
The shoot was a success but I always seem to have some disaster. Half way through the second look my camera decided to run out of battery, me being the professional that I am always remembers to charge the night before a shoot, it turns out the charger was broken. I managed to get a quick lend of another camera which was an absolute life saver.
I returned home to pick my faves and edit, I then realised there was a small tear in the main lead connecting to my mac and also it was bent due to a mirror falling off my wall on the the mac. I kind of freaked out and then made do with masking taping the lead to the computer, I don't know how safe it is and it keeps randomly shutting down.

This dress was a steal, I bought it from a charity with no intention of wearing it due to it being completely see through. However, Tanith rocked it and its in keeping with the rockabilly theme.

1940's Style

This is some research I done on 1940's fashion for a styling a photography assignment. I'm loving the Burlesque and Rockabilly look beautifully portrayed by Amber Rose and then Elizabeth Taylor down below. Have my model, make-up artist and venue booked, I just need to get some accessories sorted for the outfit.
