Back in Time Men Portraits: An Amazing Opportunity
This Back in Time project was amazing! Most people go to a fashion studio to take fashion pics, but I had the opportunity to do some back in time men portraits! Welcome to an era with the United States was entering WWII. Back in time where young men flew off to war in planes and the woman stayed behind to tend to the social aspects of war. It was a blast from the past! Here are some back in time men portraits I did.

Also, a big shout out to LEGACY FLIGHT MUSEUM for letting me use their museum for this project. Here is their website! http://rexburg.org/pages/lfm-legacy-flight-museum
I was lucky enough to go back in time and have a model who had permission to climb aboard the wing of the plane. This image is a SQUIBB portrait (Studio Quality Invisible Black Background). It was taken with a speedlight with a flashbender attached to it. The speedlight was set almost to its maximum limit while I had a F-stop of 18 and a Shutter Speed of 1/500.
Same model, back in time, except now in front of the wing of the plane. Same thing as last time, we used only a speedlight with a flashbender. This time however, it was not SQUIBB. I darkened the background in Photoshop and gave it a filter that gave it an old timey sepia look. A great back in time men portrait.
For this shot, I wanted to take a Black and White action shot that showcased a man back in time going off to war. His wife was fixing his buttons one last time. For this shot, we used on-going strobe lights that was able to light up my subject very well. In Photoshop I added the black and white filter. A great back in time men portrait.
Part of my project was to use a photo to make a logo of some kind. What better logo than that of the U.S. Army? I selected out a model from one of my images and then blended it with an image of the American Flag in Photoshop. It turned out to be a great looking propaganda poster.
As I was completing my project, I saw this model in a leather jack just standing in front of an airplane. I decided that I needed an image of his because he looked so serious. The only available lighting at that moment was an LED light, so I snapped a shot and got a photo of this cool looking pilot. Awesome right? A great back in time men portrait.
Alex, Your work always amazes me! Your photos looks so professional, like they are straight out of a magazine. You work kind of reminds me of Annie Leibovit’s work. You should check out her stuff. http://portfolioone.com/photographers/annie-leibovitz/
