Needles. Lots

Things have been busy. Shooting like a madwoman and retouching until my back aches and my arms spasm. Yeah, fun.

But on Monday evening I'm scaring the living shit out of myself (and my dear, co-operative and pain-tolerant boy) by getting half-naked, shibari-bound in purple ribbon and having our arms stuck full of needles (by Wildfire's lovely Lliezel) for a self-portrait shoot with him, part of a series on body modifications and pain rituals for my graduation body of work. Since my early days of studying Photography in High School, I've had a theory about putting myself through what my models go through for my shoots... and this is definitely something I have to experience myself to fully appreciate.

It's going to be interesting... to say the least. Haven't had any multiple/play piercings done before, not sure how I'll handle it but I think it will be stress-relieving in its own way.

Pictures and thoughts to follow soon.

Magenta Clingwrap and One Happy Rabbit.

So, I'm a pretty happy girl. I bought my own light yesterday and had a little play around with it last night... I shot a self-portrait, which I hadn't done in ages. Make-up, hair, wrapping self in magenta clingwrap (not easy!) and camerawork by yours truly. Here's one of the resulting shots:

Adding to my excitement, tomorrow I am shooting some beautiful, naked, tattooed girls and taxidermied birds. I can't fucking wait, I'm going to be in my element...

Procrastination and such

Hi kids.
Procrastinating on actually posting photos just yet... retouching and reworking a few of my series for posting. Will put up a few bits and pieces in the meantime hopefully...
Planning some epic new shoots for the next few months.

Keep watching, and thanks for the support.
