A small complication was the factor that the girls were abroad and had limited time for agreement, but thanks to the messenger we approved all the details. The models themselves have a slim body shape and tanned skin, which was a great plus for photographing. According to the clothes, we picked up and the most conveying Pin-up style and at the same time that the clothes looked harmoniously among themselves. It was also important to take into account the accessories that will emphasize the style - glasses and scarves added brightness and contrast to the models. Shoes were red and black, most suitable for the look. To complete the image, it was decided to make hairstyles, symbolizing Pin-up and at the same time suitable for each of the girls and bright makeup.
We decided to do the shooting in a few days before the wedding, on a weekday, because with fewer people on a background it would be easier for us to hold a photo session of a bachelorette party. Time was chosen to capture the sunset and thereby add brightness and saturation to the shooting. For the photo session of the bachelorette party in the style of Pin-Up, I picked up two locations that were most suitable for our purposes. The first is the old building of the Polytechnic University, which reflects the atmosphere of retro-style and also next to it was the alley with trees, which added depth to the photos. The second location was Feofania Park which I chose taking into account the fact that it was suitable for an organization for a picnic there. An important the fact was that the locations should be close to each other.
On the day of shooting, everything went according to plan. We used a rented vintage car at the Polytechnic University for the first image. We agreed in advance that the models took champagne and glasses with them. At the first location we had about an hour. In the shooting I used 2 lenses, in order to convey the whole picture: 35 mm with an f/3-4 aperture so that all the girls were in focus and 85mm f/2.2-2.6 aperture to blur the background and focus on models for the close portraits. We made contact with the models right away, as if we had already known each other for several years, which helped to make great shots. There was a clear sky outside and the sun was already softer, as it was nearing sunset. Then we went to the second location - Feofaniya. While Oksana (the witness) went for a walk with Tatyana in the park - the rest of the girls and I decorated the picnic area with fruits and decor. Candy bar and balloons were ordered in advance. By the time everything was ready, the sunset time had just begun, as we had planned. The very shooting of Pin-up's bachelorette party lasted about 1.5-2 hours and took place in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. At the end of the photo shoot, Tatiana and the girls were delighted.
As a result of a photo session in 2.5-3 hours, we received 400 shots in raw format. Even during the photo session, I saw through the camera screen that the percentage of the deflects was very small and I carried out a selection more by removing repetitions and less favorable angles. As a result of the selection, I received +/- 200 files, to which I further superimposed color, using Lightroom. In Outdoors the coloring is more difficult to do than in the studio, as the lighting is constantly changing and it is more difficult to achieve common shades of photos. In my work, I do not use presets, I customize all the color manually. I added sharpness on this photos of the bachelorette party to increase the contrast. Further, after the colouring process, I selected 25-30 photos for retouching and further use in open sources. In these pictures I cleaned small defects and slightly smoothed faces. The result you can see on this page.
