New Garter Pictures!

The other day D and I did more lifestyle pictures of the garters and I’m pleased with how they turned out.

I think this picture turned out well considering I really didn’t have anything in my closet that I thought worked with the green and pink garters. This was the last picture we did and were trying to figure out other ways to show garters on a leg without it getting too…weird. Or creepy. Overall I think it’s more cutesy than I would have wanted to go, but I guess it can’t always be my aesthetic.

This is the picture I’m thrilled with. Again, I couldn’t find any stockings or knee socks to match the dress and garters so I went without. I had some misgivings about photographing the garters on a bare leg, but I think it works here. I think it’s much more summery than the other pictures. In case anyone is wondering, that’s our bookcase I’m sitting on.

The other reason I love that picture, is that is looks like this movie poster for Rolled Stockings.

Lost film Rolled Stockings starring Louise Brooks.

Sadly, the original version of the film was destroyed/ lost and there are no copies.

For the peach garters I wanted an image that was a little more dressy than the others. I think the silver bead makes them feel more formal somehow. I’ve also noticed in these pictures that symmetry works well for displaying the garters.

I liked this detail shot of the black ribbonwork so much more than the studio shot, that I replaced it on etsy. I didn’t do any shots of the bobby pins, that will have to wait until I can coerce a friend or hire a model.
