We are fast approaching that time of year where the temperature rises to a point that it is possible to get outside and dine ‘al-fresco’.
What better way is there, than to pack a hamper full of goodies and bring along a bottle of your favourite Fizz?
To make seating comfortable and dry we always recommend bringing a floor mat, preferably with a waterproof membrane on one side. The more decorative the better in order to set the right scene.
Of course, its always difficult to know what to wear for such and occasion. Our ladies on this particular day decided to dress up, as opposed to down in some suitable fetish attire.
Crossing a lawn in ultra high heels can always pose a challenge! Luckily they had me on hand so they could cross wearing slippers and then exchange those for the heels when in place. A top tip for those who want to avoid clumps of mud stuck to the heels making it look somewhat grubby, by comparison.
Naturally, fine seamed stockings are essential for a wholly decadent expose.
It wasn’t long before Destiny delved into her more Dominant persona and had our guest on her knees and ready to obey. What a persuasive young lady she is!
To work off the calories from all the goodies consumed they then vacate to our tree area where destiny demonstrated the first exercise of this session, a standing push up or bench press…
Its amazing what you can get up to in an afternoon, and how the Sun and Wine turn your mind into a haze. We’ll let you imagine how this lovely little country soiree panned out…
Whilst we can extol the virtues of having now invested in more than £2,000 worth of professional lighting, we would like to say that is was not always like this…
Our early foray into shooting Pin Up and Burlesque styles had us utilise a set of double Builders lights, on a tripod, from a Hardware outlet that cost us around £25.
The Lights ran very hot and so gave little scope for modification or control. We did, however, manage to rig a sort of diffuser in front of them to avoid really harsh shadows.
Needless to say this was one of the few shoots we have done where the model, clearly used to more professional set ups, was clearly not impressed. Despite her initial ice cool reception she did dig deep to work and produce some fine poses.
The video below does much more justice to the shoot and just shows how with a little ingenuity one can ‘beef up’ the whole output to represent something cool and worthwhile.
All we say to budding creatives. Go with the flow, work within the means of what you can afford, but above all get out there and Just Do It! You will be amazed at what you can create.
Its not everyday we are delighted by the presence of two ladies from our local Thai community to come and shoot some fashion styles with us…
We started with some traditional Thai garb, and then moved on to something a little more risqué…
It was great to see them enjoying themselves as they confessed to usually being very camera shy and body conscious
We think our relaxed style helped them get into the mood off being more playful and at ease and they just kept on smiling throughout.
It was great to see just how well shiny nylon was complemented by their skin colour really bringing out a great contrast and shine.
They did comment that often back home in Thailand the weather is too warm where they live to wear nylon so it is not that common, unless going out to a special function in the evening when it gets a little chilly.
They concluded that they felt very feminine throughout the shoot and we believe we have some new converts to nylon. All that remains to be said, Job well done! And it is worthy of note that this images are straight out of the camera without even a first pass edit in Lightroom, so you can see the level we achieve from the outset.
Do drop us a line if you would like something shoot for posterity? Or know a friend or family member who could benefit from our services?
You may or may not remember the old style ladies lingerie shops that used to display oodles of foundation wear and girdles and more often than not had upturned mannequin legs in the window adorned with the finest seamed stockings…
Well if you didn’t here is an example. Our fabulous model, got right into the theme of the shoot and when asked to show her appreciation for the inanimate stockinged leg showed her appreciation with her tongue. Cheeky Girl!
But after all, isn’t that the essence of old style Pin Up shoots? A sassy style and cheekiness go hand in hand with that era where sexuality exuded an innocent naivety sadly lacking in our more overt modern times.
Mistress PussyKat, understands the genre of Burlesque very well and knows that the whole point is to use her full repertoire of skills to tease the weaker sex into a state of complete acquiescence to the power of the feminine form. Whether it be an adjustment of her stocking tops, or a twirling of her pastie tassels, each delicate movement adds to the next in achieving the desired goal.
This, ‘you can look, but you dare not touch! style can be seen at many of the Burlesque revival shows that have become popular in underground subculture of late, and has even broken into the mainstream with the relentless promotion by top stars like Dita von Tease.
The other point of this style is a celebration of real women. Yes that’s right, women with a bit of meat of them, women unabashed and unafraid to share their buxom and very beautiful nature with you. Almost, the antithesis of what the global advertising industry pumps at us all daily of stick thin, anorexic almost ‘junkie style’ deities, known as models, who survive on a lettuce leaf for sustenance.
Yes its a Renaissance for all women (well with the exception of carpet munchin’ feminists perhaps!!!) And yes this article does not lie within the boundaries of ‘so called’ modern political correctness, but that after all is a concept designed to strip you of your sense of self and individuality. We welcome those of you who do appreciate the finer nuances of life’s rich pattern and take this text with the tongue in cheek style it is intended.
Do you ever get the feeling that you are no worthy…
Mistress SlipHorne can sense this from a thousand paces, and invites all worms to kneel at the end of her crop.
Yes that’s exactly where she wants you. Prostate in front of her, eyes down awaiting your next instruction.
Yes,…the strike of the lash can be painful, but the you will have to make sure you do not deserve it. There would be nothing worse than pulling down your trousers and pants, in front of an audience, to be admonished now would there?
Next comes the collar! A brutish collar for a wimp who know its place.
A Collar you can wear with pride, as we move on to the next phase of your training. Tie and Tease with a Feathered Implement would seem most appropriate to test your mettle.
We have worked with many Mistresses over the years to develop promo shoots that give an authentic insight into the tamer side of bdsm. If you are a Mistress who would like to partake of this service then do contact us now. Alternatively, you may be a couple who would like to dip your toes into this arena, or a female who has just started to sense her need for something more and thinks bdsm might be just like the Advanced driving Test for all things sexual and sensual. Either way, we have the props and facilities to realise your dreams and capture something cool and interesting.
Well let’s face it, that got you looking didn’t it?
Today’s post is a celebration of our local dockside heritage.
And also a hint that we can use many places as a fine backdrop to add interest and variety into the mix of how we compose our shots.
Bringing the pictures to life with a little HDR twist also brings out all the lines and textures and expresses just how much detail a digital camera is actually picking up.
The Sun is on its way, so we start to come alive and get out and be more creative.
We Love shooting outdoors and have a wealth of great places in our locality. We always have an assistant or two with us to ward of any unwanted attention, so you can assure you will be safe, but at the same time will need a little exhibitionist streak in you…so no wallflowers need apply!
Given the opportunity to showcase a delightful blonde model as a Druid Goddess we jumped at the chance. We knew she was a grounded individual as she works in animal welfare, and we wanted to capture something of substance and meaning.
Shimmery cape, PVC Boots and Corset and a Druid ceremonial Dagger all blended to create the look.
Then we moved on to disrobing a little and going for a classic boudoir pose.
Next, add in a pair of glasses for the perfect demure secretarial look.
Its always great to work with a model who is diverse in her approach to her kraft. A single shoot turns into a wealth of unique content that can be put to good use in so many ways.
And this is only one look that we played with out of two shot across an afternoon. Wait for a later post where we will reveal the ‘retro femme fatale’ look with a designer hat by Zara Carpenter worth nearly two hundred pounds.
We admit it! We have an incurable passion for fine shoes and often buy many pairs on spec to use in our various photoshoots. Many models starting out don’t have a full complement of garments and shoes and so it helps if we can provide them…
What we are showing in this post are out takes from a workshop we ran covering Burlesque and Fetish styles. We provided the shoes to accompany the models outfit adding value to the overall look.
We now have placed this pair worn only once on eBay for you to purchase as a keep sake or for a loved one.
FINE SHOES FOR SALE
So we were stranded in Toulouse, France and were put up in a four star hotel due to an Air Traffic Controllers strike. We were there for nearly a week. Luckily we had lots of Nylon in our suitcase and so did some awesome shoots in the hotel.
We also did a few tours of the City and took in the many Art Galleries, exhibitions and Street Art. On our journey we came across an amazing retro second hand store that was just a cornucopia of unique retro artefacts. We had a good nose around and then left, but as we turned the corner outside I saw the most amazing pair of boots in the Window. Something that Betty Page would have been proud of. That was it, I ushered my Wife inside to put her dainty size 4’s into the ultra snug real leather delights. They were a perfect fit and we had to have them.
Since then they have been used in only one other shoot, which we called ‘Nylon Mistress’ for obvious reasons. Plus we meet very few models with such small feet. Luckily, the very lovely Miss Jenson was also a perfect fit and took on the role with veritable aplomb!
