"In the early '80s, the arcade game Pac-Man was twice as popular as oxygen." -Charlie Brooker
I have been envisioning this shoot since the first time I set foot in Free Play Arcade in Richardson, TX. The throw back to the 80's was so fun for me that I knew I had to share it with the #OPPSenior Model Team.
Amidst the console games Pac-Man, Tapper, Frogger, Asteroids and many, many more, I saw what these games represent to me. These were simpler times, when something as basic as different shaped blocks stacking on top of each other to form full lines was the challenge of my life and when there was nothing more thrilling than putting my initials in the High Score table at the end. To this day, I remain a Tetris master! Just watch me fit all of my photography gear into my Nissan Juke and you'll see what I mean!
I collected retro t-shirts, brought my roller skates out of the attic, told the girls how to style their hair and makeup (which was probably more fun for the moms!) and we took over Free Play Arcade for an hour before they opened to the public. The resulting shots were so fun that several were featured on the Instagram accounts of #seniormuse and #senioryearmagazine. One was even published in Senior Muse magazine!
Enjoy these images from what was definitely the most fun group shoot to date in my opinion!
