It's the most famous photographers studio in France since 1934.
I don't known if HARCOURT is famous out of France...
They are really well know for their vintage style black and white portraits.
All stars from the Golden age were pictured by them from Clark Gable to Brigitte Bardot, but also modern actors like Jean Dujardin.
I could have show you many and many gorgeous portraits,
but I will only show you this one!
This is an original from the 40's that Sylvain and I found in an old movie theater in Lille.
Just a french starlette but you can see the quality of this picture!
So why am I speaking about Harcourt Studio?
That's because we heard about something amazing for Valentine's day...
One of Harcourt's photographer will be at a commercial center near home and will picture a portrait for free for all couples that will come. So Romantic!!!
We were really excited because do you know how much costs a portrait in their studio?
About 2000 euros!!! Can you believe that???
So I chose this classic 40's style for the shoot...
Vintage 40's crepe dress with nice details.
Sylvain wanted to wear his new 50's sweater.
We have to wait a bit, because a lot of couples wanted a nice portrait...
And here is the result...
I must tell you that we were quite dissapointed..
The lights give a really nice background on this picture,
But as it was free, I don't think the photographer gave his best...
There are some really bad shadows on both our faces,
picture could have been a bit more dynamic...
we think we look quite fater and older on that picture...
finally our personnal little pictures are not so bad!
I think if a photographer don't take time to understand their models...
see what can be their best angles and change lights orientation from model to model, he cannot have a perfect result.
You must take time to have a good portrait!
