SAWADEE KA OR ‘THAI FOR TWO’

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?

RETRO LEG LOVE

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.

Mistress Pussycat

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.

RETRO TAN FF NYLONS

As if you hadn’t seen enough nylons in this portal, here we are bringing you yet more. A little fuzzy just the the golden days of VHS, this clip was found out there in hyperspace begging to be shared.

I all honesty we never tire of seeing Fully fashioned Nylons, as they are such a rarity nowadays. Unless your Wife or Girlfriend wears them as a treat for you, and reveals in the gawping attention of other admirers…

LATEX CATSUITS

Something we found floating on the internet caught our eye, and it involves lots of shiny latex, our second favourite material.

We have no idea who it is or where it comes from as there is no watermark, so any clues would be very helpful to credit the originator. We like to promote others wherever we can…

MISTRESS SLIPHORNE

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.

STORMKITTY

Its always to nice to work with new models, and see their confidence develop throughout a shoot as they warm to the experience and find their own style.

StormKitty2

We hasten to add that we are big fans of people who develop their own style and personality and we Love helping them find a new side of that persona.

StormKitty3

So a delightful model, StormKitty, from Sussex agreed to shoot at a nice friend’s flat in Brighton and give some retro secretary in nylons and rubber a go. The Nylon’s in question were limited edition La Perla BlackFoot style with contrast seam.

StormKitty4

The Nylons set went very well, with both an appreciation for uber high heels and nylon foot tease.

StormKitty5

We then shifted to experimenting with different lighting to change the mood, and showcase a very shiny rubber two piece, Pink Peep Toe Heels and Jonathan Aston, ‘Burlesque’ seamed Pantyhose.

StormKitty6

We know that Stormkitty has gone on to being very popular with her alternative style and ‘can do’ attitude and is now doing around four or five paid shoots a month.

It is always great to give somebody the jumpstart they need to get their career off the ground. We have done it many times to date and are always looking for new talent to help and encourage into achieving their goals and dreams. Not all will succeed, but its a great journey and something to look back on with pride when old and wrinkly and reminiscing with the grandchildren…

CAMGIRLS

Occasionally we come across a video clip that captures our imagination perfectly.

Here is a short nylon tease clip that we are using for inspiration in developing our new sets for our VLOG.

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!
