Vintage Travelers - Santi and Adam

I wanted to use this blog entry to continue showcasing some of the other Boho photos, but I ran across this lovely set of photos from the Vintage Traveler theme that we had during the same Meetup event.

Below we have Santi and Adam modeling in 1940s costumes.  The scene's lighting was by Dirk Dreyer of Dreyer Pictures and the styling and theme by our Meetup coordinator, Marebeth Gromer.  Though for the first shot, it was all natural light.  And the light was pretty harsh!  You can clearly see that from the shutter speed of my camera.  The X-T2's max mechanical shutter speed is 1/8000sec.  The tarmac at the airport provided some bounce lighting and filled in some of the shadows.  The look between Adam and Santi is perfect, with his indifference and her apparent rejecting of him.

And, of course, in this next photo, they appear to have made up.

The below photo didn't have some artificial lighting even though it was shot in an aircraft hanger.  Again, it's natural light.  Dirk had set up lights for a group of previous models, but for this shot, the lighting was off.  As always, per Damien Lovegrove, whose lighting techniques I've been inspired by ever since I got my first camera, always shoot into the dark side of the face, which I did here.  You can see the contrasting shadows on Santi's face provide a nice counterpoint to the even lighting on Adam.  Will she?  Won't she?
