I used to have my studio plastered with girls when doing model photography. Pinup girl style looked very shrine-like, as every model had its section. One time a girl came over; she felt like she didn't belong and didn't stay long. I get that; it's intimidating, I bet; however, now that I'm in the process of getting out of the business and restructuring my studio with a focus on music only, I still need decorations, and I want to show off my work in a minimal less intimidating way with the option to view all at the same time. So here is what I’ve come up with.
The studio is mostly soundproof material, leaving not much room for pictures. I decided to pick 3 of my favorite models with whom were a joy to work with, and I have lots and lots of love and respect for (Shelly, Olivia, & Kate) and 2 of the best pictures of them. 2 walls would be dedicated to them, but only show 1 photo of each of the three models. So six pictures total, two for each model. This had to be done right; no frames can be used as the glass in the frame bounces sound null & voiding the sound absorption material needed on the walls. So they had to be put up with velcro adhesive. Also, the boring letter-sized prints had to go, so I went with the European standard A4 matte, not gloss. It couldn’t be gloss because the lighting in my studio would produce a reflection so great you, at certain angles, couldn’t see the picture. Now, this is the best part, for those who enter the studio and wish to see more of the beauties, I’ve included a QR code both in the pictures and next to the images that can be scanned by phone and takes you right to the gallery of that particular model on your phone hosted locally. I’ve stumbled upon the first-ever digital museum; instead of art on the walls, QR codes link to more of the art on the walls, providing more wall space for sound absorption and less on the intimidation factor. But probably not… whatever, it’s about the music, not the bitches.
I will have photos of the studio when finished.
