    Shot with a Mamiya Universal camera with Polaroid 669 pack film.
    I was going for a retro pin up/WWII Recruiting thing with the muddy colors, contrast, and soft focus. The film is balanced for daylight, and the lighting for the shot was tungsten.

    For the sake of commenting on a hot chick, maybe too much at the top of the photo, too square a pose (maybe just repositioning the sword in front of or behind her leg) and the coat makes her legs look stubby.

    The pose is very square.. I think the sword is making a line that does not need to be there. I would move the sword also. Perhaps move her around in different poses. Depending on what you are wanting to say in the shot.

    study some pinups of Betty Grable or even Bettie Page. Have her stand up and play a bit more.
