Pin-up style shoots is a fun genre for photographers. I shoot with the NY Pinup Club from time to time, which puts together some fun venues and finds some great models for these shoots.
Here are some images from a couple weeks ago. We photographed at the Shoreline Trolley Museum in East Haven, CT, with three models and some talented stylists and makeup artists whot gave our models some incredible looks.
Tech Notes: I used a combination of on-camera and off-camera flash, depending on the physical ability in the different areas in which we were shooting. On both speedlites I was shooting with, I used Rogue Flashbenders to get some nice even lighting, or to use as fill flash where needed.

The local pin-up photography group has an annual photo event at the American Airpower Museum on Long Island, NY, which offers a great backdrop for model shoots. When you combine pin-up styled models and vintage planes from WWI and WWII you are rewarded with some impressive looking images.
These images were shot with my Nikon D800 and either a Nikon 28-70mm f/2.8 or Nikkor Micro 105mm f/2.8 lens. The images that I made with flash lighting were from my Nikon SB-910 Speedlite which was mounted off-camera on a light stand, with a Rogue Flashbender soft box.
