A quick splatter painting with cherry juice on raw canvas. I added gold powder afterwards. These puppies are sweet!

While I love using live models for all of my vintage wares because they add an element of fun and life (duh) to each of the pieces...I've found a new love. DRESS FORMS! I think they make the clothing just look so lovely and timeless. The focus is on the clothes (and not my beautiful models) which just makes a huge difference. What do you think??
I love that these photos are really beautiful. The lighting is natural and warm and the clothes just glow! It's almost inspiring enough to paint...but I'm a painting goober who just loves light so...ya know? :)

Hello lovely readers of my blog (are you still out there?!)!
So as I mentioned in a few posts before I have started an Etsy store selling vintage clothing. I have had so so much fun doing this. It feeds my need for shopping, my love for thrift stores, and even makes me some money.
Taking photos and being a model has been quite a trip. While I am truly loving being a photographer and stylist there have been some weird issues that have popped up. It's so hard taking photos for the sake of the clothes and not the artistic value! I find myself looking for funky angles and lighting to mimic all those photos I took in my manual photo class. BUT those kinds of photos often don't make the clothing look spectacular.
Here are some of my favorite photos!
P.S. A lot of these aren't even posted yet! So you all get a sneak peak. Enjoy!
