A look she often is cast for. NO post work; this JPG is straight from the camera.

The first one, she should have a rolling pin in her arms.

Her expression is interesting, a mix of sweetness and challenge.

I don't quite grasp the 50's thing, she looks pretty 2018 to me. Of course in the 50's I was just a little kid.

I agree, especially the law enforcement uniform. The models dress in the first image could be from the late 1930's to present day.

I wouldn't want to tip-toe in late at night on this girl. She looks "kick butt". :-)

Not sure I ever understand straight from the camera statements. No post work is not a bragging right in my eyes. If this is a out of camera shot it was still post processed by your camera software. To me SOOC would be a raw file only.

SOOC to me means you have no artistic vision or planning for images and you might as well shoot in auto mode then. All the great masters of the past post processed even their film captures. They were limited by a darkroom we pretty much are only limited by our imaginations.

In the 50's she would have had red lipstick....

I have seen studio portraits done with a Fuji 50-140 f/2.8 where the jpg (processed, as you say, in camera) needed no post processing because makeup, hair, clothing, and pose were done properly.

The housewives I saw in the fifties never looked this desirable.

Nice work on both of these, and you certainly nailed the look on the first one.

I remember stockings with seams, long fitted skirts, girdles and uplift bras from the fifties being very desirable. This not to say the young lady is not desirable. She is very.

And the 50's hair styles were often more severe, and elaborate. I can still see my mom standing in the doorway yelling for me to come eat supper!! 50's was beehive and such, Lauren Bacall, Marilyn Monroe, Jane Mansfield, Lana Turner, Lucy, Rosemary Clooney (I could go on and on). The lady in your pics, she is a very good looking model, but the hairstyle is much more current.

Is she LASD? Her gaze is "focused."
