This set was a strange set, in that, when I shot it I wasn’t sure whether I liked it or not. There didn’t seem to be a defining direction. As a result I kinda sat on it for awhile. Over a year after I shot it I came back to it and was mildly surprised at how well it “worked” for me now. I think the premise may have been too simple for me when I shot it but, after some time away from it, I actually liked the “feel” of it. A softness,with a a slight sweet sensation… peach.

Leila has always brought that beautiful pin-up charm and I think she did well here again. She’s proven to be a very good model not only in her specialty but in trying other concepts as well.

Cabaret is the result of what you can do when you’re just kind of messing around. Leila was staying at a place with a great red wine colored wall so, I thought it’d be cool to shoot in front of it. We toyed around with a few props and the only one that seemed to work was the hat. So it’s a very minimal shoot. However, Leila is great at delivering great facial expressions and having fun while doing it.

Nocturne is one of my favorite shoots of Toxic Goddess Leila. It was funny that we had all sorts of outfits and stuff available and settled on a relatively simple concept. Leila has a classical beauty and it’s easy to place her in a shoot like this. The down-side to her is she gives you so many great moments and you have to choose between so many great photos. That’s good problem to have. Leila really worked well within the sort of mystical/goddess/neo-classical idea that I was trying to put across.

The set-up actually reminds me of the work of artist Virgil Finlay. My initial title for this set was going to somehow incorporate his name into it but decided to keep it simple instead. He was an artist who specialized in pen and ink illustration. His work was featured mostly in the pulp magazines of the thirties and forties. The pattern in the cloth reminds me of the stippling effect that Finlay use to use in his work. If you’re unfamiliar with him, check out his work.

As a final thought, sometimes in photography you get what we call “happy accidents.” In this shoot I actually have one of those. Near the end I’m shooting into the light and there are some dust spots on my lens and it creates some really interesting spots on the lens. At one point it even looks like a small flame has appeared over her head. I felt the spots actually kind of enhanced the mood I was going for so I left them in.

When Leila told me she was cutting her hair (for a good cause, Cancer research for kids) I instantly thought about doing something different. What you see is the result of that brainstorm.

Leila’s strength is pin-up/classic style. So it’s always fun to throw her into another arena. This set, like the Green Conservatory, displays how amazing Leila’s range is. She bought into the concept and delivered. I think she plays well within the idea of a bizarre futuristic wasteland.

A special thank you has to go out to Jennifer Marks, not only for her make-up (which was spot on for what I asked for) but the doll as well. Her contributions were certainly significant. I spent a long time putting the set together and it’s always nice to get a rewarding photo set out of one’s work. Especially when several hands come together to create it.

I know that Leila tends to like glamour shoots, so this is pure glamour. The name comes from the elements of this shoot… the ragged patchwork wall… the checkerboard floor… Leila’s leopard corset… there are a lot of dissimilar components of this shoot.

Two things unify the pieces… my lighting… and the incredible Leila who manages, once again, to capture the essence of being both playful and being seductive, and does it like no one else.

This set was a nice leap of faith by Leila. Her “style” is much different than what we did here. However, I had a pretty solid idea about what I wanted to do with the lighting and I knew that I needed a “dark” look.

While I wasn’t sure if Leila would be up for the transformation, I went ahead and suggested that she try something a little different. She seemed a little hesitant but agreed. I then went to Jen and and told her that Leila was okay for trying something different. I explained what I wanted and let her add any touches she wanted since she had the concept and I trust her skills and judgment.

Needless to say we got some excellent images. I think Leila really worked with the idea. Jen’s make-up was solid and it was fun to do. By the end of the shoot everyone was helping out in some regard as an assistant. Therefore, I must give a thank you to Dirk and Jen for their help. Also this shoot was done at The Conservatory in Oklahoma City so, I must thank Dustin again for allowing us to use the place.

At the end of the shoot Leila was joking about her “appearance” and how she would be “going out” and looking very different than she usually does. So I appreciate that sacrifice and it turns out that she really liked this set and it’s one of her favorites. Sometimes it’s good to try something a little different.

“Toxic Goddess Leila and the Possessed Christmas Tree” by photographer Robert Henry

This shoot was done with a special guest… Ernie the possessed Christmas Tree. See Ernie was a Grinch /Scrooge person in his life so, when he died he was reincarnated as a plastic Christmas tree. So when Leila was so close he couldn’t touch her, he got a little agitated.

So enjoy this holiday update and don’t be a Grinch.

I had the idea for this shoot about two years earlier with another model. As it turned out, I didn’t have all the elements lined up until this shoot. I’m so glad I waited! The background and lighting is perfect. Danger Darling did a fantastic job on the makeup and Leila was brilliant in this shoot.

This set has about 50 gallery worthy shots! That’s kind of nuts. If you get one shot out of a set that you’d hang, then you’re happy… to get so many awesome shots makes me ecstatic!

I think Col. John “Hannibal” Smith said it best… “I love it when a plan comes together.”
