Private Dance 9

Private Dance 9

It’s been a couple days since I added new pics of Amaya and Sarah and their lapdance shoot. Felt like I definitely couldn’t wait any longer. So here’s some more.

And there’s still even more to come. You lucky people.

XII-Hanged Man

XII-Hanged Man

Sometimes its amazing how simple something can be. I spent months obsessing over how I was going to rig the hanged man card just right to have someone hanging upside down by one foot. Only in the last week or so did it occur to me that I had changed the base pose of pretty much every other card, so why not that one?

Anyway, once I figured out that i should change the base pose, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this one. I had wanted a male bondage card to offset Temperance anyway, and Cade seemed like a natural for it.

Marlo’s Back B&W

Marlo's Back B&W

Marlo was one of the first models I ever met through Model Mayhem, and although we quickly became friends, it was months before we ever got around to doing our photoshoot. Hopefully it was worth the wait.

Ended up using them to make a calendar that we sell.

I am quite happy with this card. When I came up with the concept while talking to Rachael, we were both kind of excited about it. In fact, talking about the card with her was the entire thing that inspired me to take her, Laurie and Amaya on the river shoot.

That said, I was kind of nervous about it. I was quite confident that taking pictures of three gorgeous girls nude, in an absolutely gorgeous mountain river setting during golden hour would turn out great. What I was worried about, however was doing a tarot card outside of the studio setting. From the very beginning of this project, I had intended to do every shot in the studio so that I could have visual consistency in the style. But I had taken pictures at the waterfall before and I was pretty sure I could blacken it and process it to the level that would make it look the way I wanted. Especially with golden hour lighting.

I’m quite happy with how it turned out and hope that it matches the other cards well enough. I wonder if I’ll end up doing any other cards outside.

And of course comments and criticism welcome.

Amaya had the idea of doing a nude photoshoot down at one of her favorite spots in West Virginia. So I took Rachael and Laurie down there to do the shoot with her.

We got there at the crack of dawn to catch golden hour light which provided some amazing results in my opinion.

More to come

II-High Priestess

II-High Priestess

Sarah was nice enough to volunteer to pose for the Tarot deck when she was visiting last week. The second she volunteered, I knew exactly what card I wanted to use her for. I love the tattoo on her shoulder and she has just enough hair to obscure her face in mystery and make a perfect High Priestess. Originally I was thinking of adding some background elements like I did with some of the other cards, but as I was finishing up, I felt like that would have been doing too much. I remembered why I went for the cold black backgrounds in the first place. Not to distract from the model. Just let her create the mood alone.

Comments and criticism welcome and encouraged as always.

Rima contacted me about posing for the Tarot deck on Wednesday and we shot her on Thursday. It’s about the fatest turnaround I’ve ever done on a shoot, but it was another case of just trying to get a shoot in when both the model and I happened to have time.

Sarah is a model who contacted me when she saw another model’s pics I’d taken. She had the perfect look to be one of my pages for the Maverick Tarot, but as with lots of the other models I’ve worked with, I decided it’d be a good idea to take some other shots too.

Eight of Swords

Eight of Swords

Two days, two tarot cards in a row. It’s like I’m on a roll.

Adam posed for this card while my computer was in the shop. I really wanted to find a way to really take advantage of the drawing style of the sword cards and still be kind of dynamic. This is what I came up with. All the Eight cards are going to have the symbol incorporated into them as part of the design.

Nine of Staffs

Nine of Staffs

It’s been a while since I posted a new Tarot card. I actually had to take a break from it when my computer was in the shop. While it was down D and Adam were in town to pose for their cards. I finished editing D’s tonight. Adam’s will be up soon though, and I’m probably shooting two more this week as well. I need to get some more of the guy cards done. Never thought I’d say that.

Anyway, I was concerned about this one. I was worried that D’s green hair would come across as too punk and not preppy enough to be a staff card, but upon completion I think the hair color combined with the thong and the fire just make the card a little edgier witout moving her into goth per se. She’s certainly not A&F here, but I’d still think she was kind of trendy. Opinions?

Like most of my recent models, I met Laurie on Model Mayhem. I actually saw her as a preppy staff card type for my Tarot Set, but she told me she really wanted to try to be one of the sword cards. The more I talked to her, the more I liked the idea of using her there. She has a very versatile look and that ended up being perfect for the idea of the 3 cards, a reflection of the one suit in another.
