A Pin Up Girl photo session at the pool
Another way to show the fashion of swimsuits and accessories
A pin-up model (pin-up girl) is a photomodel whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display, meant to be * pinned-up * on a wall. Pin-up models may be glamor models, fashion models, or actors. These pictures are sometimes known as cheesecake photos.
Pin-up modeling has * theatrical origins *, starting from burlesque performers and actresses and sometimes used photographic advertising as business cards to promote themselves.
Understanding the power of photographic advertisements to promote their shows, actresses women self-constructed their identity to make themselves visible. Being recognized not only within the theater but also challenged the conventions of women’s place and women’s potential in public.
Being sexually fantasized, famous actresses in the early 20th-century film were both drawn and photographed and put on posters to be sold for personal entertainment.
Among the celebrities who were considered sex symbols, one of the most popular early pin-up girls was Betty Grable, whose poster was ubiquitous in the lockers of GI during World War II.
Though Marilyn Monroe and Bettie Page are often cited as the classic pin-up, there have been many women who were also considered to be impactful.
In the 1920s two of the most notable Black burlesque dancers were Josephine Baker and Lottie Graves
Let’s see some photos this summer, keeping the idea of Pin-Up Girl
I had the joy of having photomodels to be girls without inhibitions and understanding the photographer’s intentions.
The beauty of swimwear on young bodies delights our eyes, and Pin Up courage makes us smile at every bold expression.
I photographed with Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Canon EF 70-200mm / 4L IS lens.
For back-up I had Olympus camera.
