Last summer some friends of mine and I thought it would be fun to go out and do some random photo shoot. The subject matter was chosen, and we decided to take inspiration from Pre-Raphaelite paintings. Good thing we're all from a theater group, so putting on costumes and going out in public was very natural for us. The photos were all taken by our good friend from KUVALIBRE photo blog.
Some painting we tried to recreate as faithfully as possible.

With others we took some artistic liberties.

I am half-sick of shadows, said the Lady of Shalott by John William Waterhouse, 1915 (Source)
And, of course, we took some photos of 'stunners', which I think the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood would have approved.
There were so many photos that I had to leave out quite a few. But you can see them all here.
Please remember, these pictures do not belong to me, and if you would like to re-post them make sure to credit the photographer: KUVALIBRE.
