One of the themes Lindsay Adler loves to explore over and over again is “vintage modern” — meaning she loves to take elements from the past and infuse them with a modern twist.

For this shoot however Lindsay really just went all in with the vintage look.

The model for this shoot actually was the inspiration as she is a professional burlesque/pinup model and just has that “vintage style” look to her.
Here’s a break down of the lighting:
