I’d say that this shoot is a good example of the debate that goes on in my head every time I start thinking about the lighting for a set. It also underscores the happy accident concept.

Rob and I had some fairly inconsistent lights we were using when we did these shots. I was getting a series of misfires with the natural light in the background which left me with just the straight blue light on Leila. While the natural light made for a better glamour shoot, the straight blue was more artistic. So, I ended up shooting it both ways. I like the results of both, but they are very different.

Leila was a great model for this shoot and while this rig is not highly restrictive, I’m sure it was tough in those sky high heels. You’re seeing almost every shot I did and that’s a real testament to the model.

A shot from this shoot was featured in the IAO Gallery’s Biting the Apple exhibition in 2007. For those of you who are asking for rope bondage on the forum… here it is! Some of the Goddesses may be interested in more complex rigs, and if so, we’ll bring that to you as well!

American Geisha began as an idea that Leila and I were throwing around while thinking about doing a second shoot one evening. The idea centered around creating a shadow/silhouette of her figure against the umbrella. We started playing around and got a LOT of images. So much that part one doesn’t even have the silhouette shots.

Working with Leila is a joy because she has a lot of energy and lights up when she shoots. She has a love for pin-up and vintage style and I think it enables her to really shine in shoots like this. I’m really proud of this shoot not only for the results but, in the fact that we were able to pull off a difficult lighting set-up. Which again, is part of the reason we had so many images.

So start with an idea, add a great model and some interesting lighting and you get a bunch of pictures. We finished with around 230 overall pictures. So, this week you’ll get a bonus update so check back later.

This is the first shoot I did with Toxic Goddess Leila. I knew we immediately had a great model on our hands because she really understood how to pose for the environment. Most models take some time to get the rhythm down, but she was right on target from the beginning.

The concept behind this shoot was to do a straight pin-up style set, with classic lighting, background and props. The thought was to create something timeless and I am very happy with the results.
