One of the advantages to doing pin up is the opportunity to shoot with some really beautiful old cars and hot rods! A while back, I got the opportunity to do that with Ivory Rose Photography. Some of the photos ended up in Tantalize Magazine too! Today, I am going to tell you all about what it is like to work outdoors and some of the other issues you may come across while working in a public space.
One of the difficult things about working outside that day was that it was a bit muddy, and the sun was not super cooperative. This particular shoot took place in the fall, and as the time progressed, the angles became more difficult! However, we got plenty of great shots, and working with Ivory Rose is always a pleasure!
While doing this is a lot of fun, the weather can sometimes play a factor on how great something is going to turn out. The sun was a bit of a problem, but Ivory Rose combated it with ease. I did one car shoot sometime back where the camera overheated. It was wretchedly hot that day, and it was probably for the best. We had fun though.
If you are shooting in a public space, be forewarned that you will have people staring. During the shoot where the camera overheated, I actually had a group of kids that followed me around that day like an entourage, completely starstruck. I cannot tell you how much that did for my ego! I loved it. However, not everyone is as nice. After this particular photo shoot, we had a guy who approached us and got a little handsy with one of the models. He was touching her leg while saying he was admiring her tattoo. That is just not cool. If you are in that kind of situation, make sure you are firm with creepers and also try to make yourself known to others for help. For the most part, people are usually great, but in all things, just know your surroundings and be careful.
Modeling with cars is one of my favorite things about pin up modeling. Make sure if you do a shoot at a car show that you try to get permission first before posing and shooting. Also, do not touch someone’s vehicle without permission. That is just a huge no no.
