Vintage Ventures

Vintage Ventures the adventures of a vintage soul…

This was my first full-scale vintage photography project. I wanted to capture a visual language that melded the vintage feel of art nouveau with the more modern concept of photography. During the days before the shoot I looked over a few portraits of Marilyn Monroe. Perhaps this was an influence, too. I love the feel and look old films and old paintings as well as modern art. I think the shoot was a mix of that and the fact every time you open your eyes you’ve got a new situation which can inspire you, in its own way. I think you have to build up a connection with the model and create a special atmosphere between you and the model.  It helps a lot when the model is able to forget she’s on a photoshoot and can relax.

It was quite cool experience cause I’ve never done nothing like this before in such a big way. 

So take the time out and enjoy “Vintage Ventures”.
