Retro seems to be a word thrown around alot these days, so I looked it up: “Retro is a culturally outdated or aged style, trend, mode, or fashion, from the overall postmodern past, that has since that time become functionally or superficially the norm once again… It generally implies a vintage of at least 15 or 20 years.”
I just hope corduroy does not become the fashion again! It seemed like forever ago my friends and I were going down to RollerRoyce rollerdrome to play Galaga and Pacman and strap these clunky wheels on our feet. The only way they are going to be remotely in my life again however will be in a photoshoot on a stellar (retro phrase!) model like Katya.
The disco ball brings it all home… after all, it was the John Travolta Flashdance era. I really love shoots with themed colors… makes them look planned. In reality the socks actually had blue stripes, but you can spend a day looking for matching socks or a few minutes in photoshop solving that problem.
If these shots look familiar, it’s probably because they are from the banner of the front page of my website… If you guessed correctly, come collect your free photoshoot at Bryan Ward Ph0tography Ltd… Just kidding!
The headshot was a reversed closeup of this shot, did you catch that? My backgrounds came from vector art of two wallpaper styles from Istockphoto.com… I should probably revisit the last shot and add it in.
