Scholten & Baijings Ottoman - The use of futons, as customary in typically Japanese rooms, served as an important source of inspiration. In the second sketch phase the idea emerged to use the old Ottoman Empire as an imaginative starting point.
I don't do a ton of #retro types of photography like pin-up, as it just does not appeal to me that much as an artist. I do like looking at it, as the poses and woman are often beautiful, but from an artistic standpoint it is kinda like glamour photography to me, which isn't what I like to make. However, on this shoot we did end up with a bit of a retro look, but in atypical fashion, I actually enjoyed it. :-) #retro https://plus.google.com/+HaroldGardner/posts/4cMrDicqaS7
