Propaganda Pinups - Fight on the Defensive! by warbirdphotographer Propaganda Pinups - Fight on the Defensive! by warbirdphotographer
Continuing the WW2 Military pinup poster series... here's Brittnee in this JOIN THE NAVY poster. This wasn't really modeled after a particular poster from WW2 and instead I thought of an original design based on several posters. Brittnee is wearing a Navy jumper top and a US Navy version of the Mae West life jacket. It's blue, instead of the orange yellow you usaully see the life vests because as the war progressed on it was found that Japanese pilots would strafe the downed airmen in the water because the bright colored life jackets made them stand out in the ocean. Making them blue made it a lot more difficult to see. Brittnee is also holding the famed M1 Garand rifle.

Model: Brittnee

I really love this. Part because I love classic pin up, I'm a pin up model, I just joined the Navy, and I love vintage looks.

I love the concept, and being a prior Navy guy and a Pinup lover, this is right up my alley. The only thing that strikes me odd about this is the rifle. I realize the muzzle is out of focus, but it's such a large part of the image that it detracts from the rest of it, in my opinion. Still like it overall though.

Thank you! The out of focus muzzle was a choice based on the focus of the image and depth of field I was able to achieve being so close. I wanted that dramatic oversized looking gun effect, which meant a wider angle shot up close. Trade off is that shallow depth of field. But, I realized that if the muzzle was in focus, your attention would be there. There's no way around your eye going to the muzzle first, but I figured with it being out of focus people would almost instantly then see her rather than study the gun, if that all makes sense!
