My office downstairs became a studio today complete with lighting.

This shot was inspired by the 1940’s film stars.

I’m up to the third brief for the Canon Photo5 Competition and we had a shoot at home today. My son’s gorgeous girlfriend, Louise, was again my model. Ooooh, I do love taking photos of her.

This is one of the shots from today. (not for the comp)

    OOh, 40’s glam. Louise looks gorgeous! Fabulous image Lorraine, I love it :)

  • I love that era. They were so stylish considering the hard times. I think To think…Louise has been a part of our family for over 6 years and I’ve only just discovered how photogenic she is…I’ve had my eyes closed and not seen the potential. She’s gorgeous indeed. x
