Why we like it:  Art school fashionistas with vintage cameras unite! Film isn’t dead!
Bruno captures a well-dressed young woman posing with a vintage camera. Good lighting combined with the color-coordinated palette of the model’s clothes and background help to elevate this shot.  I wonder who (or what) she is taking a picture of?

To help make your portraits more successful – be sure to pay attention to the details. Smart clothing, makeup and prop choices can really make or break a portrait – especially when you are shooting in the studio. Imagine Bruno’s shot without the stylish clothing or the well-chosen vintage rangefinder camera. Despite a beautiful model and good lighting, it just wouldn’t be the same.  While it never hurts to be spontaneous – don’t leave your props to chance – make sure they coordinate well with the concept and mood you are aiming for (and always make sure to scrub out any logos and brand names too!).

What do you think?
