Pinups - Camera Day! by warbirdphotographer
Pinups - Camera Day!
Happy National Camera Day! To celebrate, today's pinup features Shalyah and the trusty Speed Graphic camera! The particular model she's holding is a Pre-Anniversary 1939 Speed Graphic with a Graflex Flash handle. She's also holding a 4x5 sheet film cartridge and ready to take two photos with the film loaded on either side of the cartridge. With the Vought FG-1D Corsair behind her, there's plenty of photo ops for her to choose from. Since it's national camera day, also included is a 'behind the scenes' starting shot from the original studio shoot with Shalyah that was used for this pinup. A side note, I've been experimenting with shooting some 4x5 film with that very Speed Graphic camera... and once I figure out the most efficient way of developing the film, I'll be posting some test photos I've taken over the last year!

Propaganda Pinups - Airborne Enlist! by warbirdphotographer
Propaganda Pinups - Airborne Enlist!
Want a print or large size poster of this US Airborne Propaganda Pinup Poser? You can order one now on the Dietz Dolls Online Store: www.dietzdolls.com/catalog/pro…

Today's pinup is another in the Airbrushed Propaganda Pinup Poster series featuring Kelsey in this call to join the U.S. Army Airborne forces! The 82nd Airborne along with the 101st and many other Airborne squadrons from many countries played a pivotal role in paving the way during D-Day (June 6, 1944). Thousands of Us Army men found themselves deep behind enemy lines as they were dropped the morning of the invasion, and as they gained more and more land they eventually linked up with the forces from the Normandy beachhead securing the way to the Nazi defeat. Since the release of the epic Band of Brothers miniseries on HBO, the Airborne forces of World War 2 have gotten a huge boost in world wide popularity.

Pinups - Coca Cola by warbirdphotographer
Pinups - Coca Cola
Today's pinup features Cristina in this Coca Cola themed pinup in another 'real pinup photo' that I'm posting occasionally throughout the year to remind those who enjoy my pinup work that every pinup you see starts as a studio taken photograph and the models area real gals. The uniforms and equipment are real and the models are really in the studio. I prefer the vintage style processing in the finished product over just having a real studio photograph as it's unique. There are many pinup photographers out there who shoot and post pinup shots looking crisp, clear, and modern day looking... a similar pinup style you can see just about everywhere. That being said, some people might occasionally like a 'real' photo without the vintage effect added to remind them that these are all real models shot in the studio.

Propaganda Pinups - Keep 'Em Rolling! by warbirdphotographer
Propaganda Pinups - Keep 'Em Rolling!
Today's airbrushed style pinup is another in the Propaganda Pinup Poster series this time featuring Shalyah and the M4 Sherman Tank! This poster celebrates the call to the homefront and the industrial might to keep the tanks rolling through rationing, production, and buying the all important War Bonds and Stamps. You had to ration the metals, food, gas, etc needed to make the tanks... you had to work hard in the factories building the tanks... and you had to make sure you give 10% for War Bonds and Stamps so more tanks could be made! Shalyah is riding atop a M4A1 Sherman Tank.

Nose Art Recreations - Blonde Bomber (B-17F) by warbirdphotographer
Nose Art Recreations - Blonde Bomber (B-17F)
Another recreation of a REAL Nose Art from WW2! This pinup is based on a Boeing B-17F Flying Fortress #42-3057 named 'Blonde Bomber' from the 324th Bombardment Squadron, 91rd Bomb Group. Based in Bassingbourn, UK this aircraft went missing in action after being hit by flak on Jan 11, 1944 during its 38th mission. 2 crew members were killed in action (pilot and radio operator) while the rest were captured and became POWs.

This image is made from various photos put together to replicate the nose art with digital artwork and photomanipulation used to simulate the painted look on the side of a bomber. Colors are best guesses as many of the WW2 nose art photos are black and white. The original WW2 nose art photo was used only as a reference. The background is a photo of painted B-17F skin for panel and rivet texture. All the elements were blended together to appear really painted such as paint textures, colorization, metal surface blending, and more. The model has been heavily modified from the original photo to match the proportions of the original nose art pinup. A photo of the original aircraft is in the top left of the image. The original artwork was not censored with a white bar, however to keep it classy the 'AAF Censor' bars were added to the recreation.

Good stuff and true Pinups - classy(and classical), sexy, but never full on nude or pornographic.

Thank you! That's what I'm trying to bring back. People think pinups need to be nearly nude with tattoos... but in reality the Golden Age of pinups were more teasing and clean, very classy.

I am so sick of tattoos. People think they're supposed to make a woman more beautiful. Maybe in drawings like anime style but rarely with real women.

Couldn't agree more. To each his/her own... however I feel tattoos on a gal look like graffiti on a beautiful sculpture. Sadly, people seem to gravitate more towards the tattoos in this day and age. Call me old fashioned, but it makes me miss the Betty Grables, Rita Hayworths, Veronica Lakes, etc.

I know very little about the pinup style of paintings on the WWII aircraft.... one thing that strikes me though is who did it? I would have thought paint would have been a hard to come by commodity and not all pilots would have been painters....

Who was responsible for them?

Hello! Actually, paint wasn't that hard to come by. Most of the airfields weren't too far from civilization or the pilots/crew could get some paint while on temporary leave. There was a lot of down time, and it wasn't just the pilots but also the crew who might have been artists. A lot of time the same guy would do the nose art for the whole squadron, or several squadrons and even could be asked by squadrons at other bases. Sometimes it was the pilot, sometimes a maintenance crew member, sometimes even a civilian.
You can find quite a bit on the WW2 nose art history here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nose_art…
