Motorcycle and leather, anyone?

Up until recently, I have been scared shitless of motorcycles. My dad had one when he was my age, crashed it (not his fault) and suffered a bad concussion (as did everyone else I know who owned/ owns a bike). My mom worked in a hospital and saw countless motorcycle accident victims and I grew up hearing horror stories. In no way did my parents give me the message that street bikes were bad or dangerous, they were simply sharing stories. I just put it in my head that they were scary death traps.

About a year ago, I saw a woman riding a street bike next to me. We pulled up to the red light and I admired everything about her. I’m straight (and married, mind you), but I couldn’t help but admire the way her body hugged the bike. Her legs were long and lean and her back, although covered in a leather get up of some type, looked tight and beautifully arched as she leaned over her beautiful Honda.

The light turned green and I saw her pick up her foot and begin shifting. I looked down at my ’99 Civic I owned at the time, and although it was a manual, I still felt envious over how badass she looked taking off down the street, her foot shifting the bike that was now so far away from my cardboard box with wheels.

I now have a strong appreciation for street bikes, and although I may not feel comfortable enough to ride one quite yet, I’m dying to do a photoshoot with a beautiful bike, whether it be a Harley or sporty street bike.

Leather jacket, torn jeans or matching leather pants, kick ass boots, faux hawk type hair with edgy makeup.. Whats not to love?

I’m dying to do a depressed starlet/ showgirl type shoot. I’m envisioning a beautiful entertainer sitting in her dressing room, crying in front of her vanity. Makeup will be scattered in front of her, and maybe some shoots can have a beautiful wig or headpiece falling off her head or lying at her feet. Her makeup is smeared from crying and there’s a bottle of pills in front of her and/ or a bottle of alcohol. I want to convey a beautiful, glamorous career (whether it be vintage like Marilyn Monroe or even present day like a beautiful Vegas showgirl) but have the woman almost dying inside. She seems happy and gorgeous on the outside, yet is miserable and withering away within.
Although this picture doesn’t really show much, it gives some sort of a vanity desk set up and can be used as some sort of inspiration toward the shoot.

This should do it from my photoshoot with BlueHalf. I couldn’t decide which ones to post which is why I went buck wild and posted so many. Sorry for the redundancy!
