Pin up Photography is a style has roots back in the late 1800’s.  It was in the 1940’s where the term pin-up started, referring to paintings, drawings, magazine, newspaper and postcards where the image could be “pinned up”.  Another popular  place for the retro pinup images  was on the planes of WWII, otherwise known as “Nose Art” Today, the style is a bit of a subculture and a favourite of photographers and models alike to include in their portfolios.  Many private people love to have their portraits taken in this retro look.

The production of a pinup shoot involves specific preparation for both the model and the photographer.  To be effective, hair, makeup and wardrobe and posing needs to be appropriate for the shoot.  From the photographers end, the lighting and post processing needs to be done uniquely to reproduce the film and colours available from the era.  Yes, a modern pinup can be made with modern clothing and modern lighting, but nothing beats the fun of getting dressed up and reproducing images from days gone by.
