WE ARE BACK…

It’s been a very tough six months, and none more so than the last two as the upheaval of moving takes its toll on one’s stress levels. But, we are now settling in to our new abode and searching for new premises to set up our third studio.

In the meantime, we have received very favourable comments from fans of our News features. Some people, like Roger, are developing their own niche of Nylon appreciation and we are going to showcase the work of people like this who adore women wearing nylons.

Studio and home shoot based posing, and an interesting array of Nylons capture the essence of what he likes to capture.

In his own words…My passion for NYLON material began in my teens, and I remember going into department stores and seeing Mannequin’s clad in those original 100% Non -Stretch Nylon stockings in various colours, on the hosiery department. I always remember going in regularly to see if they had changed the colour……and they usually had.!
Now some 30 years later, I still love that material whether it be used in stockings or nylon underskirts.
I have now taken up female model photography, and shoot models on a regular basis wearing nylon stockings and underskirts, as this is my passion..If there are any models who would like to be photographed wearing them, maybe for their photo portfolio, please do contact me. I have dozens of pairs in my possession, In many different colours.

Roger’s portfolio can be found on PurplePort.com as ROGER PHOTOGRAPHY or he can be emailed direct rogerkeay1@gmail.com.

We Thank him very much for supplying fresh content to showcase, and wish him the very best in finding lovely ladies who are willing to pose in Retro Nylons…

FROM SASSY TO ELEGANT

MyraSassyChick1

When a friend who is a profoundly excellent yoga teacher asked us to do some promotional shots for her we jumped at the chance…

MyraSassyChick2

Starting with a nice look for a typical day out with the girls we encouraged her to find her sassy style. She has a great love for Rock music and following the local music scene so we knew she had it within her to take a simple dress to a new level.

MyraSassyChick3

Of course it alway helps if one is fit and flexible to strike a number of poses easily, with a natural flow and elegance.

Through our pre shoot discussion we had found that she is an aspiring author an decided to flip her look to reflect how a successful woman might dress for a cocktail reception for her newest book deal.

MyraElegant2

She is such a vivacious person and it is so easy to make her chuckle, so we had to pause frequently to regain composure.

MyraElegant3

Without a doubt, she has all the right attributes to kill it everytime, her warmth and personality shining through.

MyraElegant1

In each set she is wearing simple barely black pantyhose to complement her outfits that give a nice elegant line. We provided the cocktail dress and accessories for the evening wear shoot and the first green two piece was the models own.

We revel in helping people achieve a look that reflects their personality and makes their image ‘pop’. Its so important these days in the realms of intense social media to have a look for the moment or a look for an emotion to keep your offerings fresh and engaging. Drop us a line if you would like to work with us on your own image and branding.

BUILDERS LIGHTS

Esperanza

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.

 

FILTERS AND POST PROCESSING

SarahLH Burlesque

So a young lady approached us to assist her with entering a competition in the USA. The first phase involved shooting her front side and back in fashion and bikini styles to gain entry.

SarahLH Burlesque

Off the back of this we decided to also shoot a little Burlesque/Lingerie set to add another dimension to her fledgling portfolio.

SarahLH Burlesque

She provided the shoes and basque, we put together the rest of the package, and as you can see the shots turned out nicely.

SarahLH Burlesque

We must admit, we prefer the floppy wide brimmed hat to the traditional Bowler on her, but that is part of the flow…Sometimes you have to try different things to get the look that really works.

Also we are talking today about filters and post processing. But it is also worth mentioning white balance. It is important to firstly set the white balance on the camera to match the sale of light you are using. So in this case we would select flash as we were working in the studio.

Even on that setting you can see that all the pictures above came out of the Canon camera, we were using at the time, a little on the warm side, which translates as a little towards the yellow side of the lighting spectrum. This tinge can be taken out by moving the white balance slider in Lightroom towards the blue end of the spectrum.

Some people get the model to hold up a colour balance card at the start of a shoot that has a neutral set of greys on it. This can then be chosen with the colour picker in the white balance adjuster to set the overall tone for the picture. The setting then saved and stamped on all the proceeding images to get a unified colour scheme. We hasten to add that this all only works if you shoot in manual mode. If you shoot in automatic, the colour balance etc will vary from shot to shot an make it a nightmare to colour balance the whole sequence.

Below we show an alternative style called cross processing that allies an algorithm to the shadows and highlights to achieve a totally different effect.

SarahLH Burlesque

The skin tone looks more natural, the blacks a little sharper and the edges/highlights have a slight bluish tinge to them.

Experimentation is the key and learning to use your kit to get maximum results. We also hope you like the fiddly stockings she wore which were reversed to the normal sense, with seams and fancy lacing don the front for a different look.

THE BUSINESS OF NYLON

GoddessKyriaFFNylonsFootFetish

She knew when she came for the interview that she had overdressed somewhat, and the look she got from the other woman in the blue chip organisation confirmed their disdain for her stripper heels…

GoddessKyriaFFNylonsFootFetish

But she had heard on the grapevine that the Chief Executive she was going to meet, and be interviewed by, was a confirmed leg man who had a passion for seamed Fully fashioned Nylons. She had caught him looking unabashedly at her nylon legs for some time and decided as they took a break for coffee to take control…

GoddessKyriaFFNylonsFootFetish

First getting him to lick the bottom of her shoes and feel the sharp point of her uber high heels, she knew she had found a submissive streak in this powerful captain of industry.

GoddessKyriaFFNylonsFootFetish

Soon she had him a compromised state, and showed that the significance of a tie is not to be the best dressed man in the Universe, but a form of bondage transforming him into a chattel exhibiting his servitude, she a Dominant emancipating him from his staid and stuffy daily routine.

GoddessKyriaFFNylonsFootFetish

The Force of the Nylon was overwhelming to him, feeling the black foot Nylons gently flirting across his back, and kneeding into the aching muscles from the mornings workout…

GoddessKyriaFFNylonsFootFetish

He confirmed the Contract with a kiss of her high arches! Wishing he had the nerve to lick along the lurex seam and see where the journey might end…

Never underestimate the power of a Dominant female, who knows what she wants and how to get it.

This is a short excerpt from one of our photo novels. If you feel you have what it takes to star in this as either persona, do drop us a line as we always can fit in a new shoot to Wow the Masses!

BURLESQUE BEAUTY

Garter7

Some models were simply made for retro Burlesque/Pin Up style shoots.

Stockings and Legs on a wet Saturday

And this was one of our first attempts at going full tilt with the style.

Stockings and Legs on a wet Saturday

It is worth noting that whilst we had a reasonable Canon consumer camera at the time…

Stockings and Legs on a wet Saturday

We were actually shooting with a set of Builders Lights purchased from a hardware store.

Stockings and Legs on a wet Saturday

Hence the odd assortment of shadows that have manifest on the images.

Stockings and Legs on a wet Saturday

Its funny when you look back at old work. One has a sense of knowing and wishing that we could travel back in time and re do the shoot again with all our current kit, knowledge and experience. Alas, models come and go and this retro beauty, as far as we know, retired from shooting not long after working with us on this set. Its a sad loss as you can see she was good at striking  pose or two…

We hope by showing our flaws and development that this encourages you to have a go at chasing your dreams. Everybody has a starting point and after eight years we are still learning something new every day. So get out there, find a good model, have fun and shoot something cool that pushes your boundaries to become a better creative.

MATURE MODELS

We Love it when we make a new discovery…

We found a local lady who expressed her Love of our work and asked to shoot with us.

PRLegLove 267

She was very petite in stature, and ordinarily would have been hard to fit into retro nylons. Luckily we had in our huge repository of Vintage Nylons a very unique looking pair of Femina Tan Fully Fashioned stockings in Extra Small that fitted like a treat.

PRLegLove 235

You can see from the look on her face just how much she enjoyed wearing such decadent hosiery and taking part in the shoot in general. Some people are just so comfortable and natural in their ability to pose and this lovely lady is no exception.

LUREX, LOUBOUTINS AND RUBBER

From time to time we like to invite friends over for a fun shoot. Have a look at this extended episode to see some shots from such a day.

Mistress Serenity

The stockings in question are Cervin Fully Fashioned Nylons with a delightful Lurex seam down the back.

Mistress Serenity

They look like RHT Nylons from the side,

And Black Foots from the bottom. But they pair up very nicely with a classic pair of Louboutin Office Court shoes.

Mistress Serenity

Now add some rubber into the mix, worn by our good friend Helen Ryder.

Mistress Serenity

Who knows how to strike a cheeky pose…

Mistress Serenity

And also add her own brand of humour into the mix for what was to be a great ‘cheesecake’ photoshoot.

Most of our models have so much fun that they end up coming back for more and over time become good pals. Shoots are always a laugh, but the intent is on producing something that pops and stimulates the visual senses…and always with a dash of Nylon!

The real you shines through, without the worries of the Bills or picking up the kids or any other distractions.
