Super Mario Pinup Girls
Youmacon 2011

Emily as Toad
Mary as Mario
Brittany as Bowser

What fun! I really enjoyed shooting pinups over the summer, and couldn’t wait to try again! The nice soft general light was created by a holding a scrap piece of white sheet in front of the strobe. (Hey, easier to carry than a beauty dish or a Lasolite panel)

Pinups are really sold by playful gestures and expressions. I brought some examples of poses to the shoot, which were really helpful for getting ideas!

Thanks to lightstand Sam and sheet-holder Dan, who I hope has re-gained his eyesight by now. Forgot to warn him not to look at the sheet when the flash fired! (Note to self, bring sunglasses for Human Lightstands.)
