Decent Chic – it’s all about the hair…and the lighting

I had the pleasure of shooting the insanely talented nude art model Stana.

For that my team and myself created a theme that fits and shapes Stana for once in a slightly different role.

Hollywood and the 50s was a big influence. I was inspired by all the world class actresses and the basic Hollywood lighting, hence we realized this here on a less authentic (hard) level.
I was up to blend the lighting a bit more with a glamorous, soft touch…

I gotta admit I love the results and it will be interesting to see if any of you agree with my selections… Please leave any comments at the end of this post!
