Pin up update with Anela amaretto

Yesterday was another awesome photo shoot day, And my buddy Nelson and I met with the Amazing Anela Amaretto in San Francisco for an awesome military style pin up shoot just north west of the Golden Gate Bridge. We were at some old WWII bunkers that rim the coast line.  Anela brought her photographer friend John Hollowell of California Redwood Photography, and with Nelson as the  flag man, we captured some amazing images.   John and I were shooting on top of each other trying to catch those perfect angles against an awesome sunset, and Anela really captured some amazingly beautiful poses!!  Anela is one incredible lady, and she has one amazing talent at capturing the era of vintage pin up and giving it a twist and flair that  is breathtaking!!!  We had a little less than an hour of light to work with, but what we had was truly magical with the way it looked on film…or data card!!!  HAAA!  So with that, here are a couple of pics from the shoot and hope you all enjoy them.

    working my what? I wasnt bouncing light, I was hiding my embarrassment and that disk was nearly too small! Seriously, it was a great day and a fantastic experience working with such great professionals. Hope to be a part of more shoots in the future.

    Haven’t seen one of those bounce reflectors before. Interesting tool.
