Start to a pinup project

I have been wanting to do a serious pin up project for a while now and thought trying to do a Kickstarter project would be the best way to fund it. Things have been moving a little slow with it so I decided to do a few images to give people an idea of how it's going to look. I got my new friend Jackie to come out and these are what we were able to come up with.
 For this image I had a VERY large softbox lighting the background and on a boom arm above her. Then camera left I had a 53" octabox and camera right I had a hard light with a 10 degree grid on it to control the way the light spilled on the scene.
For this one I turned off the large overhead light and the big octa became the main light camera left and then I used the flash with the grid to light just the bears head since the dark fur absorbs so much of the softer light. 
If you like what you see here please check out the Kickstarter project and help fund the project or just share this link with your friends that would be a big help as well. Thanks

Minnesota Renaissance Festival

These are my favorite people shots from the festival. Everything was shot with my D800 and my 70-200mm then processed in Adobe Lightroom
