52 Week Photo Challenge - Week Thirty-Nine!

The Ziegfeld Follies were a series of elaborate theatrical Broadway productions in the early 1900's. Several of the top entertainers of the era were seen in these shows and many of them were captured in photographs. 
 
Week Thirty-Nine - Vintage Photo Look!
 
The photographer famous for photographing the Ziegfeld Follies is named Alfred Cheney Johnston. He created indoor studio black and white portraits with the most amazing vintage look and feel. These glamorous vaudeville photographs were produced to glorify the american girl. He used subtle colors and sepias tones in his photos. His use of glamorous costuming and lack-there-of is what drew me to this work. I had so much fun with this shoot. I shot in black and white and took my time carefully placing fabric as to show just enough.
