pin-up girl, also known as a pin-up model or cheesecake, is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display, e.g. meant to be "pinned-up" on a wall.

I have always loved Pin-ups. I have different folders filled with Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page, Betty Grable, Gil Elvgren's prints, etc. I love the accidental sexiness Gil Elvgren's models pull off; a vacuum cleaner "accidentally" lifts her skirt to show off her undergarments, or a dog just so happened to pull the strings of her bikini top. I also adore the real life pin-up babes. They all just looked so happy and confident and their lines and cellulite and rolls were never photoshopped out. Any chance I get I love to make myself up to be a pin up. Today was more inspired by Marilyn's beach photos. She looks so effortlessly beautiful and playful and that's more of what I wanted to capture through these. I ended up playing with them a bit in Photoshop to get a more grainy/dusty look like what I see in the older pin up pictures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed doing this. Maybe next time I'll do a more Gil Evgren's "Oops! Is that my garter showing?"

 Till next time,
