In my first crossover post with my good friend Cammila, I decided to put a lot more effort into Photoshop than usual. I want to make it clear that my time there was largely spent on eliminating background elements, upping saturation and applying a certain satin-like quality to the whole image to give it an old pinup look. Cammila herself requires no work at all. If anyone I know was made to be a pinup girl, it's her. However, it was far too cold out for anything truly risque, so the photos are more "inspired by" than "representation of" the genre.
Cammila is a very close friend of mine, and we go way, way back. Once upon a time, she was the singer in my band, but more recently we've each been exploring our artistic side in new ways (see: The Bakist). One of Cammila's most striking creative outlets these days is her style blog, Dressed Up Like a Lady. You should check it out immediately. And I mean, come on, she runs a style blog, I run a photo blog . . . I'm personally amazed that it's taken this long to use each other's particular skill sets!
