Raising the bar
As most of you know I have a great love of photography. I tend to take pictures of obscure interesting patterns found all around us. However -- I have had a secret goal -- I have wanted to take more kinky pictures.
BUT I don't do well with portraits. I get nervous which in turn makes my 'subject' nervous -- end result is disaster.
A couple of years back I had a willing subject who agreed to sit for some sexy kinky pictures. He was a good sport and was very comfortable in front of the camera. BUT I wanted to show him that cock pics really aren't that sexy -- a hint is sometimes sexier. And I took this picture
I don't think I sold him on the idea but I had fun and learned some lessons on kinky photo shoots.
A week ago -- someone approached me and asked if I took pictures. They are apparently looking for photographers for the Kink Carnalval in November. I didn't bite. My nerves and lack of confidence got the better of me.
Then a funny thing happened. Remember "The Sadist" I played with for a while?? Well he and I still keep in touch -- and he emailed over the weekend to see if I would/could do some new shots for his profile. And he wanted some shots of 'toys' in a nefarious manner (grinning) "nefarious" - really?? I would think one would want inviting pics on their profile -- lots of time to scare the hell out of the victim later right???
Anyway yesterday I decided to do some experiments with pictures of my toys. Test out lighting and back drops ...... just playing really. I sent them off to him to get some feedback -- but thought I would share my efforts with my critical audience...... Tell me what you think..............
