Every year I shoot at Oshawa's Autofest. This was my 5th year, but only my 4th year ever taking pictures there, and my third where I've set up a big shoot. The best art about this year was that I got to collaborate with my local vintage boutique, The Bearded Lady. Amanda, the lovely owner, has been super sweet and totally rad about shooting, and it's been a wonderful experience. There was some rough parts on the road, but in the end, we achieved some great photos for the day.
The night before I made my way over to France's and I rolled her's and Sylvia's hair into pincurls to achieve authenticity. I started roughly with a Lauren Bacall vintage setting pattern (for Fran). Unfortunately, the humidity had fought us and no matter what the curls would not take. For Sylvia, I did some simple stand-up pincurls for a super voluminous fifties ponytail and curly side bang.
Still, Sylvia and Frances were total troopers about sleeping in the curls and it was super fun!
|My outfit for the event was very similar to my Tiki Party outfit, with the exception of the hair scarf change.|
Couldn't have looked more swell!
Some gorgeous test photos.
