We're very pleased to announce the opening of our New Gallery : Studio Pin Ups
This has been no small amount of effort to reorganize our existing artwork into the appropriate galleries. Below, please find a small montage of examples of the kind of artwork that will be accepted, we would also recommend perusing through the gallery to get an idea of what's been included there:
So, the operative word(s) are simple and plain. For more definition, here are some important things to note:
Plain Background - plain setting Self explanatory I hope Plain wall (if any), plain floor (reflective is okay) - keep in mind its strictly a studio photo shoot. If it looks like the corner of a room in a home, or a hint of any location like an office (submit it instead to City Women & Glamor) even if it's rather plain. Studio photo shoots often use sheet walls as the backdrop and floor in one (no floor and no background at all is fine too).
Simple Objects A chair, a stool, a bench - simple shapes like boxes, circles etc. You can use simple props here too (an umbrella, a glass of wine, a magazine, an area rug - you get the idea). When we get into more complex objects like motorcycles or vehicles - submit those instead to "City Women & Glamor".
Lighting and Effects Lighting also is simple whether fully lit or rim lighting - keep in mind it's something, anything that can be accomplished in a real life studio. If we're applying post effects like color designs, or light strobes or fog, then its no longer studio - submit the piece to either "Miscellaneous" or "City Women & Glamor" whichever is most appropriate.
Theme With the Studio Pin Up gallery, we can see there's going to be some cross over - for instance an "elf" in a photoshoot, or a "dominatrix" in a photoshoot, or a Portraiture in a photoshoot. So, let's make this differentiation... Elves and fantasy and sci-fi figures should *always* go to the "Fantasy & Sci Fi" gallery regardless. Fetish and Gothic characters should *always* go to the "Fetish & Gothic" gallery regardless. Close Ups and Portraitures should *always* go in the "Close Ups & Portraitures" gallery regardless.
Hopefully that covers it all - any questions or comments?
