A Glamorous life
The glamorous live of Hollywood is something I can really dream about. These shots were made with so much care and fantastic props, it's really catching to watch these. I know special lights and techniques were used those days and hard to accomplish now. To have some nice high contrast and still soft Hollywood light, they used Fresnel theater lights and probably creamed in the lens with Vaseline :-)
Ladies were ment to have curves and old Hollywood was happy to show those curves. Makes me wish i was born in the 30's.
Imagine, walk down the street and spot Frank Sinatra, Clark Gable, Debra Paget, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Wood, Veronica Lake, Audrey Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Humphrey Bogart, Marlon Brando, James Dean, Cary Grant.........when it really was "tinsel town"".......Ooohhhhh :-)
Well I won't cream in my lens with vaseline for sure to be in that tinsel town hehe, but I would like to try out these inspirational shots one day.
